    A pleasantly heart-warming film expresses Growth, Change, Sacrifice, Forgiveness, and The Road we all have to travel as we get older. Promoting a true sense of the importance of family. A perfect family movie for everyone.

    Its modest surface belies the depths of a lovely seriocomedy that concisely lays bare all kinds of uncomfortable dynamics in seemingly casual, low-key fashion.

    Koreeda imbues the story with such specificity, tactility, and humanity that yet another movie about a dysfunctional family reunion becomes a cinematic tone poem.
  3. We are in the presence of a new classic.
