OUR LITTLE SISTER

海街diary | Japan | 2015 | Dir. Hirokazu Koreeda | 126min

 

SYNOPSIS:

A story that revolves around three sisters who live in their grandmother's home and the arrival of their thirteen-year-old half sister.

Our Little Sister portrays childhood forced to become adults while their parents behave like children. But Koreeda chooses always to see the light, and this gentle drama soon becomes a story of acceptance, survival and redemption, as the girls come to terms with the imperfections of the lives, realising that the future, shown in the dazzling colours of the seasons, is far more important than the past.
