A complex, sometimes grim, frequently hilarious family comedy.
8 September 2001 | by (Berkeley, CA) – See all my reviews

Rendan is a wonderfully engrossing film, from the first shot onward. It's the story of a family in crisis, and while it doesn't shy away from serious portrayals of the pain involved, it handles the whole thing with a focus on absurdity. As a result, the film is moving, perceptive, and still extremely funny.

The characters--all of them, but especially the main characters--are fascinating, bizarre, and believable. The children have, for once, as full and complex characters as the adults, which prevents the movie from ever sinking into sentimentality.

Hey, Japan--I'll give you Hollywood if you'll give me your movie industry. Deal?
