Film Fest Gent - What a Wonderful Family!

"Unsurprisingly, the film comes down resolutely on the side of preserving the family status quo, but strong performances, a quirky score from Joe Hisaishi, and a smattering of genuinely funny vignettes raise it above TV melodrama." (South China Morning Post)
