So with Tokyo Sonata, we seem to have in some ways a new course for Kiyoshi Kurosawa. His filmmaking voice and grammar seems to still be very distinct, yet it appears he his showing his chops at being able to extend that out to other types of films.
Teruyuki Kagawa of note seems to get a chance to shine and put himself on the map and judging from all the melancholy images I’ve seen of him, he certainly seems quite immersed in his role.
