A hard working salaryman takes off five days from his busy job and sets off with his wife and two children to visit his parents in his hometown for the 1991 new year holidays. He decides that they will go by car to save on expenses. Unfortunately, the long drive from Tokyo to his hometown becomes a much longer journey than expected due to traffic, sickness and other misfortunes…
A terrific film. A working man and his family set out by car to visit his parents over the New Year’s holiday. Although the film works as a “trip from hell”-type comedy, what shines through is its commentary on Japanese life, obligation, and reconnecting with your roots. The final scene between father and son is as touching as any I’ve seen. Wonderfully acted and deeply human, I highly recommend this film.
