Still Walking  (Japan, 2008)

Hirokazu Kore-eda channeled the experience of his mother’s death into his most incisive, beautifully realized portrait of a family in quiet crisis. When a brother and sister return to their parents’ home to commemorate the death of their sibling years before, subtle tensions and offhanded slights break the breezy summer atmosphere that belies the emotional wounds old and new that hold them all together and apart.
