| Very good clean fun!
...the director used the same cast as with Tokyo family. Very good actors all of them by the way. The situations in some parts are very similar to Tokyo family but with a comedy tinted view. Hashizume san is formidable in his roll demonstrating how good actor he is if you compare both films. Its very interesting how can you make two movies (or may be a few more)based on similar scripts and finish with a totally different product.

-No doubt that is difficult to have a big family (like the original title mentions); many characters, ages, desires etc; all that need some kind of catalyst to make things possible. Sometimes is a person, sometimes is a way of living generated by all their members.

-The director, script and cinematography let you IN in the movie no matter your "level", you will find something for you.

-The colors palette is very nice, the neighborhood and houses showed are quite tranquil like most residential areas besides central Tokyo. I think this area is between the Bay and Chiba.

Very recommendable.
