| A light look at a family's problems, with dark undercurrents
The Girl in the Rumour is a drama about a family that runs a sake store that once had a high reputation but is starting to hit hard times. The main characters are the father, who married into the business, and his two daughters: Kunie, who is old fashioned and devoted to her father and the family business, and Kumiko, who is selfish and rude to everyone around her. Matters come to a head when the father and his brother try to arrange a marriage for Kunie with a wealthy young man. One of the things I liked about the movie is that it started out as a fairly light-hearted drama, but got darker as the movie progressed. The characters are all interesting and the actors portraying them do a great job. A short, but well crafted gem.
