Thicker Than Water


Nippon Cinema   ª 

After he is released from prison, Takuji crashes at the apartment of his hardworking brother Kazunari. At the same time, the capable, but decidedly charmless Yuria is jealous of her beautiful sister Mako. When the two sibling pairs meet, tension rises and sparks fly. Aided by a great cast and impeccable timing, Keisuke YOSHIDA delivers a riotous, precisely observed comedy of manners.
