YesAsia Editorial Description

After a series of period films, 78-year-old legendary director Yamada Yoji returns to a contemporary story for the first time in a decade with About Her Brother, the closing film of the 60th Berlin International Film Festival. Stars Yoshinaga Sayuri (Year One in the North) and Tsurube Shofukutei (Dear Doctor) reunite with Yamada after Kabei - Our Mother in this unabashedly old-fashioned melodrama about family love and the sacrifices made in its name.

Ginko (Yoshinaga Sayuri) seems to be living the good life: She's the respectable owner of a neighborhood drug store in Tokyo, and her daughter Kaharu (Aoi Yu) is about to get married to a doctor. However, Koharu's wedding day also brings homes Ginko's younger brother Tetsuro (Tsurube Shofukutei), a failed actor and a hard drinker who shows up causing trouble. Having covered for him all her life, Ginko is ready to disown her burdensome younger brother, but some things are easier said than done.

Product Information

Director : Yoji YAMADA

About Her Brother (original Japanese title : Otouto) tells the story of a never-do-well younger brother and his generous, open-hearted elder sister. The brother is the type who can never stay still and loves fooling around admiring the comedians and entertainers of Osaka, while the sister is strait-laced and lives in Tokyo. There is a reason the sister does not discard her younger brother: the death of her husband has left her despondent, and it is his bright cheer that saves her and sets her back on her feet. For her he can do nothing wrong, and since she is always on his side, she is his port in any storm. But an incident occurs which makes her break relations with him, sending him into deep despai Long time pass. When they finally reunite, the sister discovers that the brother is terminally ill.
