Next up is Our Little Sister, (Tuesday, June 6). We brought you Koreeda’s Like Father, Like Son and now we’re screening another acutely observed sensitive drama about Japanese family life where broken bonds lead to the forging of an unexpected family tie. Many commentators see the influence of the master Ozu Yasujiro in this work which can only be a plus. Koreeda chose to place Our Little Sister in a rural setting so ravishingly beautiful the countryside almost becomes the star of the film, particularly in the cherry blossom scene, which only serves to highlight directorial restraint in the remainder. Brim-full of optimism and gentle humour, the film attracted a slew of awards in Asia and was also nominated for a Palme D’Or and won the Jury Prize at Cannes.
