A film by Hirokazu Kore-Eda, Still Walking is a touching and gentle drama about a family, the grown-up children of which journey to visit their elderly parents on one long summer day.
The rare family reunion has been organised to commemorate the tragic death of the eldest son, who drowned in an accident fifteen years before. As the family attempt to reconnect, the individuals realise that although the roomy familial home is as comforting and unchanging as the mother's homemade feast, everyone in the family has subtly changed, and that they are as bound by love as they are torn apart by resentments and secrets.
Reminiscent of Ozu's masterpiece Tokyo Story, Still Walking measures a subtle balance of gentle humor and wistful sorrow and Kore-eda expertly portrays just how annoying, and exactly how precious, family can be.
