Writer/director Hirokazu Koreeda taps a vein of meditative drama made famous by Ozu with this story of a Japanese family gathering for the 12th year in a row to pay homage to the clan's eldest son, who died while attempting to save a life. The departed's younger brother (Hiroshi Abe) is among those who dread the annual event, sensing his father's (Yoshido Harada) bitter regrets that the "wrong" son was lost. With Yui Natsukawa, Kirin Kiki. 114 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: Japanese Dolby Digital stereo Surround; Subtitles: English; featurette; interviews; theatrical trailer.
