Palme d’Or, Cannes Film Festival

“Kore-eda has the sensitive, calibrated touch of a master safecracker, and he’s a virtuoso of emotional and narrative buildup. His nuanced approach and self-effacing visual style give you room to breathe and to think; he doesn’t try to bludgeon you into feeling. (He knows the emotions will come.)” (NYTimes Critic’s Pick) – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“At once charming and heart-wrenching, this exquisitely performed film will steal the hearts of both art-house and mainstream audiences.” – Maggie Lee, Variety

“The work of a master in full command of his art. A work of such subtle delicacy, you’re barely prepared when it knocks you sideways.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
