YesAsia Editorial Description

Director Higashi Yoichi's Wandering Home is a fictional adaptation of an autobiography by a traumatized war photographer whose alcoholism destroyed himself and his family. Now, see the story from his long-suffering ex-wife's point of view in Kaasan's Mom's Life, based on the popular autobiographical manga series by Saibara Rieko. This live-action adaptation stars Koizumi Kyoko (Tokyo Sonata) as Saibara, a manga artist struggling to juggle work, her two children, and her alcoholic husband everyday. In a surprise casting move that shocked the Japanese film world, Koizumi's real-life ex-husband Nagase Masatoshi (Funuke Show Some Love You Losers) plays Saibara's self-destructive husband in a performance that earned him the Best Actor award at the Japan Film Critics Award. Director Kobayashi Shotaro and writer Manabe Katsuhiko inject a sense of humor into the story without undermining the subject matter, fluidly shifting between dark comedy and a serious exploration of alcoholism's effect on family.

On a typical day, manga artist Saibara Rieko (Koizumi Kyoko) takes her two children to school, works at home, and visits her husband Yutaka (Nagase Masatoshi) at rehab. A former war photographer who has been truly affected by what he has seen in the war zone, Yutaka is a good family man, a failing writer, and an alcoholic. Despite Rieko's warnings, Yutaka finally drinks himself into the hospital, leading to the two agreeing to divorce. When the children confess to their mother that they miss their father, Rieko agrees to take Yutaka back again when he quits drinking. Will Yutaka finally lives up to his promise, or will he go back to his old ways?

Touching tale of an embattled family Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Director Kobayashi Shotaro's "Kaasan: Mom's Life" is the autobiographical story of manga artist Saibara Reiko (Koizumi Kyoko), as she attempts to keep up with the demands of her successful career and her two rambunctious young children, while seeking to contain the chaos generated by the occasional presence of her alcoholic husband Yutaka (Koizumi's real-life ex-husband Nagase Masatoshi). There have been many films made about the destructive effects of alcoholism upon family life. What lifts "Kaasan" above the rest is the whimsical humor which arises from the film's animated segments (reflecting Saibara's story as she presents it in her cartooning), the exceptionally fine performances by the two children who play Saibara's lively kids, and the terrific chemistry amongst this fractured family unit. Highly recommended.
