Three sisters share a house in the city. They haven’t seen their father for 15 years. When he dies, the three travel to the countryside for his funeral. There they meet their shy teenage half-sister. It won’t be long before they grow fond of the girl and invite her to live with them.

MUBI's take

From the prolific writer-director of the Palme d’Or-winning Shoplifters comes this tender family drama in the vein of Yasujirō Ozu or Mikio Naruse. Hirokazu Kore-eda wisely assembles a series of vignettes of everyday moments to explore sisterly relationships and the deep bonds between families.
