Another fascinating look into yet another culture, this time Japanese. A sort of slice-of-Yokusuka (a small town at the lower end of Tokyo Bay) family life, skewed by a fifteen-year-old tragedy that still haunts the parents. If this leisurely paced (I’m being generous – it’s plodding) film had been about an American family, the FF would have been 8, but the Japanese…with their different architecture, food, furniture, and customs, it’s like peeking at life on another planet.
