"[A] classic Japanese family drama of gentle persuasion and staggering simplicity.... [T]he filmmaking is so exquisite and the acting so calibrated it sticks with you."
– Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
"**** [E]ven long-standing fans of the Japanese filmmaker might be taken aback by the supreme subtlety of his latest, achingly beautiful ode to the quiet complexities of family life."
– Robbie Collin, The Daily Telegraph
"**** The performances are brilliant throughout the ensemble and the script is full of great one-liners. After the Storm is undoubtedly one of Kore-eda's best."
– John Bleasdale,


Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota (Hiroshi Abe) wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother (Kirin Kiki) and beautiful ex-wife (Yoko Make) seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son (Taiyo Yoshizawa) - until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again.
