Tokyo Sonata (2008)

Kiyoshi Kurosawa directs Teruyuki Kagawa, Kyōko Koizumi and Yū Koyanagi in this Japanese drama where a family falls apart after their ‘salary man’ father hides his unemployment, just one of the secret lives they all start leading.

Not quite as magical as one of Kurosawa’s grounded but eerie horror flicks but hits many of the same notes. Most of the best moments are in the first half, certain subplots do go off the rails a little… Mum’s story in particular.
