Much like the director's eleven other features to date, After the Storm investigates – with skilful subtlety – the dynamics of family, teasing out interpersonal tumults and the unassailable ties that bind those linked by love and blood. In this film specifically, Hirokazu Koreeda shows that, while turbulence may form part of our relationships, our affections for one another equip us with the tools to weather them, writes Sarah Ward.
