"Three generations clash in Hirokazu Koreeda’s gentle, witty film" ★★★★ -The Observer

“I walked out of After the Storm wanting to be a better person - and further convinced that Hirokazu Kore-eda isn't just one of the world's best filmmakers, but one of its most indispensable artists” - Village Voice


Ryota (Hiroshi Abe), a former prize-winning author, went off the rails and now makes his living as a private detective. Barely scraping together a living and wasting what money he does make on gambling, Ryota offers little child-support to his ex-wife Kyoko (Yoko Make).

When a storm traps the family in Ryota’s mother’s home for a night he sees the chance take back control of his existence and become a meaningful presence in the life of his son.

With previous films Still Walking, Like Father, Like Son and Our Little Sister Hirokazu Koreeda has become the great modern chronicler of Japanese family life.
