Making of


Making of

With "Father and Son" director Yūichiro Fujishiro succeeds in a rare stroke of luck for cinema. He sensitively weaves two seemingly incompatible genres together in one film. "Father and Son" works equally well as a soulful generation drama and as a bittersweet comedy. One thing that should certainly not be underestimated is the great chemistry between the two leading actors. Conclusion: Worth seeing! Supported by Tokyo Kanda Fantastic Filmfest.
