“It acquires momentum and dramatic weight through a brilliant kind of narrative stealth.”~A.O. Scott , New York Times

Aroview: Another exquisite domestic drama from Kore-eda Hirokazu that revolves around the loves and working lives of three sisters who accommodate their 13-year-old half-sister after the death of their estranged father.

Suitable for all ages - girls in particular - the unhurried style and idyllic setting fondly recalls aspects of Hayao Miyazaki's animated films.
