The latest family drama from Japanese master Hirokazu Koreeda (I Wish, 2012 Inverness Film Festival), Our Little Sister sees the veteran director revisiting familiar subjects of family, love and cooking, all delivered in his tender and understated cinematic style.

This beautifully crafted family drama tells the story of three sisters who live together in a large house in the city of Kamakura. When their absent father dies, they travel to the countryside for his funeral. There they meet and take under their wing a teenage half-sibling they never knew.

All told, the patience of the filmmaking is pretty remarkable, a feat of embroidery slowly taking shape, and it inspires a corresponding faith in the willing viewer – it’s an invitation to sit back and settle in for one of Koreeda’s loveliest films.
