After his father's disappearance, Makoto and his mother leave their town heading to a new one. Kenji lives a quiet life with his common-law wife, Haruka, who harbors a secret. Takeo, a widowed father raising his two children by himself, takes them for a drive to the beach. Yuichi, having returned to his parents' house for the first time in a while, is lured into the woods by a woman calling his name. This is a quiet ode to four families of four men, intricately intertwined, moving from loss to rebirth. (Source: Japan = aniplex.co.jp || Translation = Discordia at MyDramaList) Edit Translation

Not Good Enough

Japanese Movie '' Kazoku '' is a drama that blends multiple stories of four men and their families.

The movie has a brilliant cinematography, with smooth shots and nicely handled light and shadows. The sharp editing also helped with the story's mood, with some scenes bringing to mind home movies.

On the other hand, the movie suffered a lot due to its short length. As it is a film about four different characters and their families, a one hour and twenty minutes run time is too short for the stories to develop properly and for the message to come across. Thus, the whole film felt like a music video, with half-baked storylines; storylines that had so much potential, especially Kenji's and Takeo's.

Finally, the performances were enjoyable and really strong by everyone in the cast.

So, overall, four out of ten.
