Audience Reviews for After the Storm

  • Sep 11, 2017
    There are some funny moments in this Japanese gendai-geki (primarily with the Grandma character), but it is mostly a dramatic exploration of family life in contemporary Japan. Ryota (Hiroshi Abe) tries to reconnect with his son, his ex-wife, and his mother. There are many piercing universal observations about relationships and the modern world. The central family are all very natural performers. They are forced into close quarters and bond again when there is a big storm across the island. With a leisurely pace and the common Japanese stylistic touch of off-screen space this movie has a beautiful sense of repairing brokenness.
