Dwelling on his past as an acclaimed author, Ryota wastes his money on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his family seem to be moving on with their lives. Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his son.

Our take

Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda delivers a humanist masterpiece with this tale of parenthood and forgiveness. Drawing comparisons to the work of Yasujiro Ozu, Kore-eda’s emotionally rich drama quietly observes the dynamics of the family at its center with boundless empathy, generosity, and care.
