A family drama of ‘bittersweet regrets and acceptance of life’s disappointments’. The protagonist Shinoda once wrote a prize-winning novel, but has been unable to produce anything of merit since, is now earning a living as a private detective, struggling to meet child support payments for his young son, and spying on his ex-wife who has a new beau. With a gambling habit, and having moved in with his recently bereaved elderly mother, he wallows somewhat in self-pity, and yearns for his old life with his wife and son, attempting to make a connection with the boy. Beautifully filmed with a deft touch and gentle humour, the director Kore-eda reminds us that ‘nothing is more important than the moment you are currently in’; especially when that moment is with your children.
