"Proof that the Japanese maestro deserves to be the metronome of all movie lovers’ hearts"
- Gabriela Helfet, Little White Lies

"Tears and typhoons on the road to enlightenment, you won’t want this gorgeous, witty film to end. Hirokazu Koreeda, the genius behind After Life, I Wish and Our Little Sister, delivers yet another doozy of a drama"
- Charlotte O’Sullivan, Evening Standard

"Hirokazu Koreeda’s bittersweet comedy about three generations of a Japanese family is a gentle delight"
- Wendy Ide, The Times

"There is such intelligence and delicacy in Koreeda’s film-making, such wit and understated humanity"
- Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"The miracle of Abe’s performance, and indeed of Koreeda’s direction, is that, despite everything, you don’t actually loathe Ryota as a character. You pity him"
- Kevin Maher, The Times

"It’s a clever, mazy film"
- Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

As typhoons buffet Tokyo, consummate miniaturist Hirokazu Koreeda (After Life, I Wish, Our Little Sister) examines a broken family and the father’s dogged attempts to glue it back together.
