Japanese (English subtitles)
An inept and lazy small-time criminal is sent off by his bullying wife to take a neighbour's grandson to see his long-lost mother - and their lack of funds turns this into a slow and difficult journey hitchhiking through Japan. There's nothing cute or slushy about this low-key road movie, which relies on deadpan humour and the variety of strange characters the pair meet along the way - and which shows a very different Japan than the super high-tech one we usually imagine.
Based on a harrowing true story, this film sees a Japanese mother smuggle her unregistered children into an apartment, banning them from going out.
