Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother and beautiful ex-wife seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again.

A bit disappointing by Koreeda standards, but a solid film nonetheless. I especially enjoyed the grandmother character, who is the glue holding the family together. The sequence during the storm is also quite good, though it takes Koreeda too long to get there. I appreciated the light, gentle touch with which Koreeda handles the material, even as the circumstances themselves are quite serious and painful.

A storm may bring tragedy, but also a family together (at least for a few hours). Koreeda stages every gesture in the tradition of japanese melodrama -- still cam, light and powerful feelings, a complex mix of guilt, love and concern --, but he also seems too eager to forge situations in order to make his characters change and talk things over -- like the tormented, flawed, gambling-driven writer trying to sleep with his ex-wife out of the blue or the late discover that his dad loved his work.

Another typical nice character drama by Koreeda but it takes a bit too long with its introduction till it gets to its centerpiece; the protagonist, his son and his ex gathering at his old mom to shelter from said storm.

Koreeda still inside the familial universe, but this time in a more character directed story; Koreeda returns to a more melancholic approach to reality, and, imo, this is where the movie stands out; a beautiful movie about frustration; very organic direction; impressive screenplay; great performance by Hiroshi Abe;

Typical solid Japanese drama. Didn't touch as strong corn as other recent film in the same mood like Our Little Sister (2015) or Sweet Bean (2015), but the acting is still of high quality and fans of Japanese cinema will appreciate this.

At first glance this seems like it's going to be about Ryota's down at heel lifestyle and gambling problems, but it gradually reveals itself to be a poignant family drama with characters mourning the loss of happier times and unsure of the future. It's a beautifully understated film directed with an easy confidence by Koreeda, who draws wonderfully natural performances from all of the principals.

Kore-eda knows how to draw very natural performances from his cast and is very good at giving you a very real slice of life style look. There's no exception here with this very poignant and deep, film about hope, life, death and family. It wasn't the tear-jerker that some of his previous films have been, but it will still tug at your heart-strings.

I haven't seen a film approach gambling in such a way where it's not played as some hammy over the top addiction thing because that's the rare type of gambler. Most addicts are very much like Abe's character where they are desperate to find something they've been missing in their life. Whether it's the love of a parent or just a will to live. To find some sort of joy/hope is the purpose of gambling to me anyway. Maybe we all end up like our fathers
