Japan – Drama – Year: 2016 – Running time: 117 mins
Like Father, Like Son and Our Little Sister were possibly two of CFC’s most popular screenings over the last two seasons. Here is Kore-eda’s latest offering. Ryota is a novelist turned private detective, claiming that his spying on cheating couples is research for a new book, but instead his earnings fuel his addiction that disrupted his family life. A powerful typhoon is forging a path towards the city.
Proof that the Japanese maestro deserves to be the metronome of all movie lovers’ hearts.
