After the Storm
Perth International Arts Festival
28 November 2016 - 16 April 2017
A stormy family meets in Tokyo.
The joys and tensions of family are laid bare in the latest film by Japan’s greatest director Hirokazu Koreeda (Our Little Sister, 2016 PIAF). Forty-something Ryota is a wayward son and an absent dad. A once-promising novelist, he’s now a shabby private detective and hopeless gambler – whose ex-wife has moved on with a new relationship. Forced to shelter together at the house of Ryota’s mischievous mother during a typhoon, this complex family questions whether they can ever reconcile? – And do they even want to?
