After the Storm

While we’re still waiting Sony Pictures Classics to give a U.S. release to Hirokazu Kore-eda‘s last film, Our Little Sister (review here), he’s already finished work on his follow-up, the highly-anticipated After the Storm (Umi yori mo Mada Fukaku, which literally translates to Still Deeper Than the Sea).

Written and directed by Kore-eda, with a release in Japan in late May, it makes it an all-but-confirmed premiere at Cannes, but before that we’ve got the first trailer for the “offbeat family drama.” Check it out below (no subtitles yet), following a synopsis.

Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota (Hiroshi Abe) wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother (Kirin Kiki) and beautiful ex-wife (Yoko Make) seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son (Taiyo Yoshizawa) — until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again.

Update: Check it out below, now wth English subtitles.

After the Storm hits Japan on May 21st.
