Nominated for a Golden Palm, this is a story that revolves around three sisters living with their grandmother and the arrival of their 13-year-old half sister. "The latest from the Japanese domestic maestro is a touching but unsentimental take on sisterly love. The film is quiet, understated and gentle, allowing the audience to take pleasure in teasing out its narrative subtleties, and presented with wonderful freshness and clarity." (The Guardian)
