Storyline

Tetsuro is living with his young girlfriend Aki in a pleasant house in Tokyo. They both spend a lot of time at their jobs. However their routine is upset when Tetsuro brings his 8 year old son Shun to live with them, while his ex-wife recovers from a car accident. Aki is annoyed because she was not asked, and she knows that she will have to do the bulk of the work in caring for him. This forces Aki to reevaluate her relationship, and decide whether she is to remain a modern working woman, or become a mother. Written by Will Gilbert

One of the best film of 1999 Cannes Film Festival
18 January 2000 | by (Lausanne, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I had the chance to see M/Other at the 1999 Cannes International Film Festival and it was clearly the best film I saw there. The plot is extremely simple, the film-making is extremely sober but I never saw a couples intimacy so well pictured. It's moving, beautiful, it's a clear 10/10.
