The funeral of doctor Mitsuo Suzuki brings his family back to snowy Sapporo. From there, a family story unfolds that dates back to the Second World War. Nobuhiko OBAYASHI proves that he still masters the techniques of radical formality. Fast editing and rapid dolly shots punctuate a storyline that doesn't sugarcoat topics like Japan's involvement in the Second World War and nuclear energy.
Nobuhiko OBAYASHI, born in Hiroshima Prefecture in 1938, began directing feature films starting with the horror comedy HOUSE (1977).
