The surprise winner at Cannes Film Festival this year, Nobody Knows' leading man (boy), the 14-year-old actor Yagira Yuuya defeated the likes of Tony Leung, Tom Hanks and Geoffrey Rush to win Best Actor Award, becoming the youngest winner in Cannes history. Since Cannes, Koreeda Hirokazu's film has been accepted into prestigious film festivals such as Toronto, London and Pusan, as well as receiving critical acclaim in cities where the film has opened commercially. While it might not have an all-star cast, stunning special effects or a huge budget, Nobody Knows proves that all a film needs to succeed is a good story and a production that is taken seriously!
Nobody Knows tells of a family in Tokyo where four children live with their mother in a small apartment. All the children have different fathers, never been to school, and three are living in hiding from the landlord. One day, their mother decides to go away to look for her boyfriend, and leaves her eldest son Akira (Yagira Yuuya) a note and a little money to take care of his siblings in her temporary absence. But when the mother fails to return, the children are left to survive on their own, thus beginning their survival tale, one that nobody knows.
