Writer-director Miwa Nishikawa's somber reflection on the strains of marriage and parenthood is punctuated with beautiful existential undertones.
Even resorting to some sentimentality, The Long Excuse reached me in the way it treats camaraderie, personal growth, and family ties with sagacious integrity.
Masahiro Motoki makes it all a joy to watch, lending a complex touch of humanity to an unlikeable role that's more involving than it has presumably any right to be.
Whether or not you believe he truly redeems himself -- I was of two minds until the end -- the film delivers a catharsis that is earned, not tacked onto an obligatory happy ending.
