In the directorial debut of Saito Takumi, Koji's father is missing. It takes thirteen years for the man to be found, but he is ridden with cancer and does not have long. The man dies in a matter of months and it is only afterwards that the family begins to learn what had happened and who the man really was.Written by
Kind of like this. Felt a little healed after watching this. This movie is very light and smooth. Staking with many tiny little things in their lives to build the whole picture. And then you just finished watching this. The father is, like his friend said on the funeral, a stupid person. The father loves his family in his own way, but couldn't give them what they need as a father. He did many small things which his family could never understand, but those things do mean something to some people. Well, then maybe I am not such a loser.
