SFF Day 11: Still Walking

This Japanese offering follows a day in a family as the grown children return home in memorial to the son and brother that passed away whilst saving someone who was drowning 15 years earlier.

The complexities of the family relationships ebb and flow during the course of the 2 days the family spends together. The second eldest son aches with his parents disapointment that he is not their now lost eldest son. A beautifully constructedand executed film where the silences and physical seperations say as much as the haunting dialogue.

A lovely film about a resilient family in extended pain.

I missed Accidents Happen that my festival neighbours tell me was an absolute highlight to attend the WWKIP day (starring Geena Davis) I have heard nothing but praise.
