Makoto Tanijiri designed the family house to have stairs (and different levels) as a key feature: "A child will be able to see the bottom room clearly from the garden, but an adult will only be able to see what's right in front of them. The child's view will change as he grows up." See more »

Deftly balances humour with heavier moments
11 November 2018 | by bitterblizzardSee all my reviews

One of those films that lingers with you well after the credits have rolled. The depiction of family is spot on and helps provide a solid foundation for the premise.

The film doesn't try to push the boundaries of how cerebral a plot can be. It expertly dishes out plot points at a steady rate, leading to a very satisfying ending.

The incredible score, sound effects and opening theme by Tatsuro Yamashita help set the mood. Overall, a fantastic film.
