Japan, Drama (subtitles)
Three sisters Sachi, Yoshino and Chika live together in a large house in the city of Kamakura. When their father absent from the family home for the last 15 years dies, they travel to the countryside for his funeral and meet their shy teenage half-sister. Bonding quickly with the orphaned Suzu, they invite her to live with them. Suzu eagerly agrees, and a new life of joyful discovery begins for the four siblings.
After the death of their estranged father, three siblings invite their half sister to live with them.
“Hirokazu Koreeda's Our Little Sister is a gentle, lyrical, beautifully shot story of three sisters who take in their 14-year-old half-sister, and find their past is not what it seemed.”
Kate Muir. Times (UK)
“The film is beautifully shot and framed, and the story it tells is universal and immensely appealing.” 4.5 stars
David Stratton. The Australian
“The arrival of a half-sister they’ve never met before subtly undermines the existence of three twentysomething women in Hirokazu Kore-eda’s tender tale.”
Peter Bradshaw. The Guardian
