    Once again Kore-Eda brings us in a japan family life. You could think "well, another one"...but each time he makes us explore all the desired and undesired bounds that human can create. We are struggling with our own emotions observing these people trying to survive in a modern society which excludes them. and , once again, it is a master piece. 2 years 11 months ago

    What an amazing flurry of emotions here. It’s all about family, even though the characters are barely related, if at all. And while they live in squalor you can see how good they have it. You even relate to them on a fundamental level.

    [spoiler]And then, when the house of cards tumbles down, and you see how (pretty objectively) everything was terrible, and the adults are kind of terrible, you still aren’t sure any of them has landed in a better place. Because the place they had was each other, and they all more or less chose that place.
