    Gentle schmaltz about how family isn't who you're related to but who you care for etc etc. Koreeda has mastered the heart of pulling the heartstrings to the point where it feels a bit clichéd - felt like I'd seen this one before. Still worked on me though and the humour was well pitched. Probably the most confident film I saw at the festival in terms of the direction... the camera placement felt right every time.

    Ambitious character study that interestingly rejects melodrama before fully embracing it. There are some pretty epic rave sequences when Freddie has her dark period. Was slightly stitled at times but overall great!
