Koji YAKUSHO 役所広司

ガマの油

Nippon Cinema   ª 

It seems to be a more or less normal family, apart from the fact that Takuya as the son seems to be more mature than his father, and maybe their house is a bit exaggerated. When Takuya falls into a coma after an accident, his dad answers his mobile and talks to Hikari, Takuyas girlfriend, and a weird story begins. Koji YAKUSHO’s directing debut tells a story about a very unusual but alleviating way of mourning.
