At their father’s funeral, three sisters discover they have an adolescent half-sister. They promptly “adopt” her, setting in motion a life-changing series of events. The latest from Japanese master filmmaker Hirokazu Koreeda (Like Father, Like Son; Still Walking) is another hugely satisfying foray into the modern fractured family, Japanese style.
“OUR LITTLE SISTER is a gentle, lyrical, beautifully shot story of three sisters who take in their 14-year-old half-sister, and find their past is not what it seemed.” – Kate Muir, Times (UK)
“Irresistible. An intimate, warm embrace of a film that radiates joy and harmony….deeply charming and quietly moving.” – Dave Calhoun, Time Out
“As its magical spell takes hold, so the film’s true depths become apparent, each character dealing in their own way with the departure of a parent, and issues of love, loyalty and loss.” – Mark Kermode, Observer (UK)
Language: Japanese (English subtitles).
Length: 2 hr. 8 min.
