YesAsia Editorial Description

Released over three volumes, Inoue Yasushi's novel Wagahaha no Ki recounts the final years in the rocky relationship between an author and his elderly mother. Acclaimed filmmaker Harada Masato (Bounce Ko Gals, Climber's High) brings the emotional tale to the big screen with Chronicle of My Mother. Yakusho Koji (13 Assassins) and Kiki Kirin (Villain) – arguably two of Japan's greatest living actors – co-star as the author and his mother. Despite the potential for plenty of tear-inducing moments, Harada takes a gentle, but unsentimental approach to the material, unflinchingly dealing with issues like parental abandonment, familial responsibilities and losing a loved one to dementia.

Kosaku was sent off to live elsewhere at a young age due to his parents' financial difficulties, and his relationship with them has been rocky ever since. As an adult, Kosaku (Yakusho Koji) is a successful author and the father of four children. However, he is also emotionally cold to those around him, including his own family members. When his widowed mother (Kirin Kiki) begins to show symptoms of dementia, Kosaku decides to take her in, despite still holding resentment for his abandonment. In her final years, Kosaku begins to melt his icy exterior and slowly come to truly care for his mother.

  昭和文豪井上靖自傳體小說改編,日本家族之愛感動全世界!
  影帝影后黃金卡司 攜手演繹最動人熱淚的親情佳作!

  就算忘記一切,但我留下的是我全部的愛…

  「就算我的母親年事已高、不能走動,我還是會背著她,去她想去的地方走走。我們一同呼吸新鮮空氣,一同去看湛藍大海,聽著她想說的話,陪著她談心…」

  享譽文壇的人氣作家伊上洪作,有著深愛他的妻子、三位亭亭玉立的女兒,寫作事業也邁向顛峰。他的人生看似美好,然而從小與雙親分離、獨自長大的他,卻一直認為自己是被母親遺棄的孤兒。直到父親過世,洪作回到湯之島老家,再度與母親一同生活,並與親戚討論照顧母親的人選。這時,正值叛逆期的小女兒琴子,為了反抗父親的強勢,而自告奮勇接下這份工作,開啟與奶奶數年的生活。

  春去、春來,洪作一家人時聚、時散。看著女兒們逐漸長大,開始擁有彼此不同的心事及未來,洪作也逐漸體會到初老的孤獨況味。同時,隨著母親年歲漸增,記憶力卻一點一滴逐漸衰退。洪作一方面要履行身為人子的義務,另方面又因為離開母親許久,無法參透與母親之間的種種情感…

  而在妻女的貼心幫助之下,洪作開始接近並接受母親、對她產生更多的理解及包容,並從母親口中聽到五十年來的家族歷史,以及她不為人知的真實心聲…
