A typically graceful turn from acclaimed Japanese director Hirokazu Koreeda (After Life, Nobody Knows), Still Walking weaves together with great subtlety an intricate and nuanced family drama, inviting comparison with the work of none less than the master of the genre, Yasujiro Ozu. Taking place over one summer's day, the film follows a Yokohama family as they reunite to celebrate the life of the eldest son, whose tragic death 15 years ago left a painful mark not yet healed.
It is during this poignant remembrance, however, that the gaps and tensions between family members become achingly apparent. Scooping up a host of awards across Asia over the past few years, Still Walking is an emotionally charged tale of dysfunction and conflict among kin that is strikingly relatable across cultural contexts.
