JAPAN | 117 minutes | 2016

A typhoon is the catalyst for reuniting a family shattered by divorce. Hirokazu works with a huge palette of emotions. Continuing his unflinching dissection of Japanese family neuroses, Kore-Eda Hirokazu returns with a powerful ode to forgotten dreams. Supported by a rich, surprising cast of secondary characters, After the Storm is driven by a masterful performance by Hiroshi Abe, playing a jaded father, inveterate gambler and failed writer seeking redemption. Hirokazu’s tender, melancholy new film is a tribute to families torn asunder by divorce but who are still trying, against all odds, to stay afloat.
