Outdoor Cinema in a Florentine Museum
Director Kore-Eda Hirokazu will be on the screen this time with "Still Walking": a detailed family drama that shines with understanding humor. The film has been acclaimed at the Toronto, Tribeca, and San Francisco International Film Festivals.
Fifteen years ago, Junpei, the youngest son of the Yokoyama family died while rescuing a boy from drowning. On the anniversary of his death, the remaining siblings visit the home of their parents with their families. Over the course of a beautiful day, new relatives become acquainted telling stories and squabbling over sizzling tempura and an elegant graveside ritual is performed for Junpei.
The director is infuenced by Yasujirō Ozu's realism -who is considered the greatest Japanese filmmaker- and has profited lessons from two schools he likes: Italian neo-realism and the nouvelle vague French.
