The 12 Best Contemporary Japanese Family Drama Movies

Since the 1950s, with internationally acclaimed films like Akira Kurosawa's "To Live", Yasujiro Ozu's "Tokyo Story" and Kenji Mizoguchi's "Tales of Ugetsu", Japanese filmmakers have been excelling in the family drama genre, one that still produces most of the country's masterpieces. Although there have been some changes, the essential parts of the category are still present: Realism and minimalism, slow pace without boredom, underlying drama, great attention to every detail and accomplished acting, all of which exist in these modern productions. Here is a list of some of the best ones.
