Music Millennium

The lyrical, profoundly moving STILL WALKING is the most personal work to date from contemporary Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda (MABOROSI, AFTER LIFE, NOBODY KNOWS). Fashioned as a tribute to his parents, the film depicts one day in the life of the Yokoyamas, gathered together for a celebratory ritual that only gradually makes itself clear. Rather than focus on big dramatic moments, Kore-eda relies on simple gestures and domestic routines (especially cooking) to evoke a family's entire life, it's deep regrets and it's daily joys. Featuring vivid, heartrending performances and a gentle naturalism that harks back to the directors earlier, documentary work, STILL WALKING is an extraordinary portrayal of the ties that bind us.
