A terrific film. A working man and his family set out by car to visit his parents over the New Year's holiday. Although the film works as a "trip from hell"-type comedy, what shines through is its commentary on Japanese life, obligation, and reconnecting with your roots. The final scene between father and son is as touching as any I've seen. Wonderfully acted and deeply human, I highly recommend this film.
