April theme: Family

Directed by Hiroshi Kawaguchi
2009
116 mins.

Yumiko Yano, with sons Atsushi and Toki, travels from her home in Tokyo with to her late husband’s parents’ home, a mountain village in the south of Taiwan. Having been raised in the big city, the boys are wide-eyed at the verdant rural scenery. Atsushi is strongly conscious that in ethnocentric Japan he is ‘different’. Setting out on a journey aboard an old-fashioned hand-powered ‘rail truck’, Atsushi discovers a world outside of his family and his school, and is forced to confront the question of what it means to be both an ‘elder brother’ and a ‘son’.
