Acclaimed filmmaker Kore-eda Hirokazu (After Life, Nobody Knows) examines life, death, and family in his outstanding new drama Still Walking (a.k.a. Aruitemo, Aruitemo), which has been compared to the works of Ozu Yasujiro. Based on Kore-eda's own novel, the film brings together the talented ensemble cast of Abe Hiroshi (Trick), Harada Yoshio (Hana), Kiki Kirin (Tokyo Tower - Mom & Me, and Sometimes Dad), Natsukawa Yui (Hana), and You (Nobody Knows) to play a typically estranged family gathered for a one-day reunion. Through light banter, bitter bickering, and banal bustle, Still Walking subtly reveals the ties and tension, memories and misunderstandings, that make up the modern family.
Forty-something art restorer Yokoyama Ryota (Abe Hiroshi) reluctantly returns to his parents' home with his new wife Yukari (Natsukawa Yui) for a rare reunion. The family is holding a memorial for the eldest son who passed away 15 years ago, and Ryota has not been looking forward to the occasion. To his father (Harada Yoshio), Ryota can never compare to his late brother, and silent resentment has accumulated between father and son over the years. Likewise, Ryota's mother (Kiki Kirin) carries years of bottled frustrations and disappointments that slip out in casual, cutting remarks. Only sister Chinami (You) seems to somehow keep herself above the family drama. As the day wears on, the family runs through the simple gestures and complex emotions that keep them together and push them apart.
