歩いても 歩いても (Aruitemo Aruitemo)
10TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING
CLASSICS: REDISCOVERIES & RESTORATIONS
The Yokoyama family gathers for an annual commemoration of the eldest son Junpei, who drowned fifteen years ago while saving someone’s life. Over the course of the day, suppressed tensions and resentments are gradually revealed amidst forced pleasantries and shared meals as second son Ryo (Hiroshi Abe) endures feelings of inferiority in front of his curmudgeon father (Yoshio Harada) and passively judgmental mother (Kirin Kiki), both of whom disapprove of his recent marriage to a widow (Yui Natsukawa) with a 10-year-old son. Dedicated to his late mother, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s 2008 drama is among his most personal films—a masterfully directed, emotionally nuanced expression of the love, heartbreak and comfort within family relationships—and a modern classic of Japanese cinema.
2008. 114 min. 35mm, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda. With Hiroshi Abe, Yui Natsukawa, You, Kirin Kiki.
Part of JAPAN CUTS 2018.
