Auteur director Hirokazu Kore-eda’s (AFTER LIFE) NOBODY KNOWS follows a heartbreaking and humorous account of the daily lives of four siblings who are abandoned by their loving yet immature and much-distracted mother. The children rely solely on each other for survival with twelve-year-old Akira acting as the surrogate parent. Yuya Yagira won the Best Actor Award at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival for his portrayal of Akira and the film is the official Japanese entry for the 2004 Academy Awards.
The New York Times calls Kore-eda’s work “Brilliant, humorous, transcendental, breathtaking and exquisitely beautiful.”
