AFTER THE STORM (PG)
Wednesday 29th November 2017 - 7:30 pm
Dir: Hirokazu, 2016, Japan, 117 mins.
With Hiroshi Abe, Kirin Kiki, Yoko Maki, Sosuke Ikematsu.
A family drama in which touching domestic scenes interweave with the seedy world of a gambling-addicted private eye. Ryota has a gentle air in spite of his occupation and the dubious situations he finds himself in. He is divorced from his wife and small son, both of whom he stillloves, and now lives with his recently widowed mother and judgemental sister. The storm of the title is on its way, the hope being that its arrival will clear the air.
