How could i never got interested in Koreada`s work? I think it was because i was a child and not mature enough! This is my most beloved Asian film so far, has a long-forgotten touch once every cinephile had known as Ozu touch. Although you can easily trace Kore-eda`s mastery to Ozu, He has always confessed that he is more obsessed with Naruse style. The Film itself is breathtakingly sweet, heartrendingly subtle, and amazingly perfect in gathering an ensemble to draw a picture of the concept of a modern Family in the contemporary Japan. Those four sisters just shine upon my heart.
