5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and moving, 24 April 2006
This review is from: Nobody Knows [2004] [DVD] (DVD)
An underseen, humanist classic, 'Nobody Knows' explores how 4 children cope when their mother abandons them for months on end in their Tokyo apartment. The film progresses gently, but is acutely observed, highlighting the different ways in which the children cope with their situation. The performances are devastatingly powerful. The most moving moments don't always come from high drama; few films can match the potency of the sequence where the teenage son takes his 4 year old sister out of the house - for the first time in months - for a birthday treat. As they walk hand-in-hand along down the centre of the road it's hard to hold back a tear.

Another gem from the ICA. Like the other DVDs from this label it comes with strong cover design and far more useful than usual chaptering.
