Umi Yori Mo Mada Fukatu (After The Storm)
When it comes to tackling the nature of complexities of family relationships, there are few better than Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda, who has nimbly dissected similar themes in recent films such as LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON and OUR LITTLE SISTER. This film is lighter in tone than some of the earlier dramas, but it suits the gently funny structure that mulls over father-son relationships, as it focuses on former novelist - and now private eye and gambling addict – Ryota (Hiroshi Abe), as he struggles to stay in his son’s life. Delightfully nuanced characters and strong use of imagery help Hirokazu’s film achieve the perfect balance of humour and pathos.
