Still Walking

In "Still Walking", the Yokoyama family come together to celebrate the memory of their youngest son, Junpei, who died fifteen years ago while rescuing a boy from drowning. Over the course of one summer day we follow the family, bound together by love as well as resentments and secrets, as new relatives become acquainted, old stories are retold, food prepared and an elegant graveside ritual takes place. It is with warmth and gentle humour that we follow the complex dynamics between the equally annoying, lovely and precious characters of the Yokoyama family, all masterfully drawn by Kore-eda, who adapted the film from his own novel.
