Koji Fukada, 2016 (118m)

Harmonium

Toshio (Kanji Furutachi) lives with his wife Akie (Mariko Tsutsui) and daughter Hotaru (Momone Shinokawa). He operates a small workshop out of his house, and spends little time with his family except for during meals. One day Yasaka (Tadanobu Asano), an old friend of Toshio’s, shows up at the workshop unannounced – he has just been released from prison and needs a job and place to stay. Without consulting Akie, Toshio hires Yasaka on the spot and moves him into the family home. This surprising action sets off an unsettling chain of events, which expose the cracks within the family unit and ultimately result in tragedy
