‘Our little sister’ and the poetics of the everyday

Uncategorized June 17, 2016

Our little sister is a delicate and naturalistic Japanese film directed by Hirokazu Koreeda about the small things of life. It was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. This family-drama is based on the manga series Umimachi Diary, and portrays in an exquisite way the story of three sisters living under the same roof when they are joined by their little half-sister after their father dies. This is a diary about a family breakdown, but also about forgiveness, about the poetics of the everyday, lots of sushi, funerals, and the sea.
