Quotes

Ko Kyobashi: Teacher Mina, when they built that housing project, did they think, if all the windows were the same size and faced south at the same angle, that they'd all get the same sunlight and everyone would be equally happy?
Mina: What are you talking about? That's for drying laundry.

Starts off generic but when it starts to unfold it gets intriguing
14 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have heard good thing about this movie so decided to check it out and by reading about it. I could sort of tell it's the type of movie that I would be into, where the surrounding is generic but the direction makes it enthralling. The movie revolves around a typical Japanese family but there is elements that make it intriguing, one of them is how the family has a certain rule. That "Never conceal the truth, no subject is taboo" so the whole family share everything. Which makes it interesting since most Asian families are conservative in most aspects. Instead of a comedy direction though it goes in a sort of real live direction in Japanese society. The most effective aspect of this movie is the depth of it all and how the truth about the family unfolds bit by bit. Overall this movie did a pretty good job of what it tries to accomplish while showing how something that may seem normal maybe much more underneath it all.

7.8/10
