2016 Japanese Academy Awards for best picture, director, etc. Slice of life, picturesque tale of four resilient sisters finding satisfying sisterhood after "stolen childhoods" by parents.

A very sweet, very mellow movie, well scripted and acted and exuding great warmth.
A family movie about family.

Beautifully shot and with a good-looking cast, this family drama of four sisters, the youngest of which comes from another mother, is heartwarming and engaging. A great film to spend a couple of relaxing hours with. Definitely one of the better films from contemporary Japanese cinema.

A poignant bitter-sweet modern story about sisters who find their own way in the world of work, love and the importance of family ties irrespective of death and divorce. Visually rich and uncluttered by judgements - viewers are given space to laugh, cry, mourn and celebrate the ordinary moments of the lives of these sisters, as they discover their own meanings and purposes.

A good film- nostalgic and sentimental but it is affecting.

I LOVED THIS MOVIE FOR THE COMPASSION AND HUMANITY THE THREE SISTERS SHOW TO THE DAUGHTER OF THE WOMAN THEY BELIEVE STOLE THEIR FATHER. THE RELATIONSHIPS ARE DRAWN FROM LIFE AND UNIVERSAL IN ANY CULTURE.

Not as good as i had expected. Like Father Like Son is a much better movie.

Gentle movie about 3 adult sisters who take in their considerably younger half sister when their mutual father dies. Wonderful acting and hints of Tokyo Story.

Three sisters living in one town meet their younger sister (who they haven't ever seen?) at their father's funeral in a distant town and it is decided that she can move to their town and live with them. The memories and associated feelings of their parents differ because of their different backgrounds and we get to see these come out as the film progresses. The Western background music may be the director's homage to the great Hollywood 50's black and white emotional (slightly soap opera) films. I am just guessing about the music.
