Still Walking

“Tokyo Story . . . The Life of Oharu . . . Sansho the Bailiff . . . Still Walking . . . almost certainly belongs to these ranks—we are in the presence of a new classic.”


Still Walking

Beloved director Kore-Eda Hirokazu (AFTER LIFE, NOBODY KNOWS) returns to the forefront of world cinema with STILL WALKING - an exquisitely detailed family drama that shines with warmth and understanding. The film was one of the most critically acclaimed works at the Toronto, Tribeca, and San Francisco International Film Festivals. Lushly photographed, and with an expert script that incorporates elements of director Kore-Eda's personal experience, STILL WALKING is a quiet pleasure unlike anything else you will see this year. 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 quaint home of their parents with their families in tow. 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. Recalling the delicate splendor of Yasujiro Ozu's TOKYO STORY, Kore-Eda shows complete mastery of his characters while revealing the complex dynamics of an ultimately loving family with humor and warmth.

"Transcendent...Completely Absorbing, so sure of its own scale and scope that while you’re watching it, the rest of the world fades into irrelevance."

"TOKYO STORY...IKIRU...SANSHO THE BAILIFF...STILL WALKING almost certainly belongs to these ranks—we are in the presence of a new classic."
Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

"MUST SEE! Fully Achieved… The triumph of ‘Still Walking’ is that illuminates one family’s history and emotional dynamics in the simplest way possible."
Tony Rayns, Film Comment

"A universal, deeply felt portrait...comparable to Yasujiro Ozu’s 1953 masterpiece, TOKYO STORY."
Stephen Holden, The New York Times

"[Kore-Eda] sees each character’s flaws and virtues with equal clarity, letting them unfold with a measured grace that equals Jean Renoir’s...The movie seems like a perfect found object, as if it had always existed and was just waiting to be uncovered."
Sam Adams, The Onion AV Club

"The sublime work of a contemporary master."
F.X. Feeney, LA Weekly
