YesAsia Editorial Description

After his critically acclaimed dramedy The Great Passage, writer-director Ishii Yuya demonstrates a new sense of maturity with Our Family, an emotionally devastating drama about the breakdown of a dysfunctional family. Tsumabuki Satoshi (The Little House) stars as Kosuke, a man who is suddenly forced to quickly take charge of his family when his mother is diagnosed with a brain tumor and is only given a short time to live. To make things worse, Kosuke is told that both his parents have each run up mounting debts, and that he was made the guarantor. An official selection of the Montreal World Film Festival and the Busan International Film Festival, Our Family also co-stars Ikematsu Sosuke (Love's Whirlpool) as the family's younger son.

Product Information

* Special Features: Making-of

Director: Yuya Ishii

Passing sixty, Reiko is a mother who frets about her radically-deteriorating memory. A trip to the hospital ensures and yields tragic results : she has a brain tumor and likely has only a week to live.

"I'm terrified of seeing our family fall apart." These are Reiko's last words before lapsing into a dementia-like state that compels her to express her innermost thoughts and feelings about family and an old flame. Her husband and two sons are at complete loss as to how to deal with the situation as all the suppressed problems come bubbling to the surface : the family's heavy debts, a dysfunctional lifestyle, the boys' disaffection towards their parents, and a pathetic reliance of the parents on their children.

Our Family is a bit like your family
From The Great Passage to Our Family to his most recent Vancouver Asahi, it seems we have now entered the calm, sensitive and commercially viable stage of Ishii Yuya's career. The indie maverick embraced on the festival circuit for films like Bare-Assed Japan has moved on to movies starring Tsumabuki Satoshi that people in Japan actually watch and award. This might be cause for concern for cineastes, if not for the fact that Ishii Yuya does mature as well as he does manic. Our Family doesn't reach the sedate heights of The Great Passage, but the observant, empathetic family drama does a wonderful job of putting the functional back in dysfunctional.

Based on Hayamai Kazumasa's novel, Our Family introduces us to the Wakanas: parents Reiko (Harada Mieko) and Katsuaki (Nagatsuka Kyozo) and their adult children, Kousuke (Tsumabuki Satoshi) and Shunpei (Ikematsu Sosuke). Older brother Kousuke is a harried salaryman with a demanding pregnant wife, while college-aged Shunpei is a glib and messy slacker. After Reiko causes a scene during an awkward dinner with the in-laws, it's discovered that her memory lapses and slips of tongue are caused by a brain tumor that the doctor predicts will claim her life in a matter of days. Furthermore, it turns out both parents have secretly accumulated debt like no tomorrow, and should they declare bankruptcy, the burden would fall on Kousuke's sagging shoulders.

Bad promptly escalates to worse in near farcical manner, something Ishii is great at. However, whereas in an earlier Ishii film, one might expect things to go even more spectacularly awry after swelling to a breaking point, in Our Family, the unreliable protagonists reach within themselves, buckle up and face the consequences as adults and as family. The film displays dry humor and absurdity in moments of crisis, but also finds dignity in desperation, compassion in weakness. It doesn't at all feel like Ishii's phoning in a heartwarming family drama because that's what mainstream cinema calls for, but rather the subtle, acute script offers a realistic portrait of how people can harbor lies, evade responsibility and put off problems on a daily basis. Those same resigned people can also pull together during tough times, because that's just what you've got to do, especially when you're family.

Everyone's family is a bit dysfunctional, but that means they must also be a bit functional, too. Our Family captures that balance of good and bad with moving, understated dexterity. The Wakanas are a bit like my family and probably a bit like yours.
