Tokyo Sonata
(Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Japan/Netherlands, 2008, 35mm, 119 min)

A father walks out on his job and then, pretending that nothing has changed at home, spends his days among the secretly unemployed. Youngest son Kenji is rebellious at school and spends his lunch money on clandestine piano lessons. Older son Takashi joins the American army, and the Mother, the glue who holds the family together, is becoming increasingly distressed by the prevalence of deception and suspicion in the family. Taking the psychic leaps of a Haruki Murakami novel and exhibiting a playfulness that suggests Jacques Tati, Japanese director Kiyoshi Kurosawa embarks on a surprising journey. A contemporary fable masterfully pitched between comedy, tragedy and Bunuelian irrationality. Tokyo Sonata is the perfect film for a troubled historical moment. Screens with short film "This True Story of Dad Club."
