ABOUT HER BROTHER (2010) - Yoji Yamada Price:  $12.99
Ototo - A restrained melodrama that works without
being sappy or overly self-conscious of its aim to tug at our heartstrings. Same
title as Kon Ichikawa's 1960 film, but is not a remake.
Ginko seems to be living the good life: She's the respectable owner of a
neighborhood drug store in Tokyo, and her daughter Koharu is about to get
married to a doctor. However, Koharu's wedding day also brings home Ginko's
younger brother Tetsuro, an actor with a stalled career and a penchant for
drinking who shows up causing trouble.
Having covered for him all her life, Ginko is ready to disown her
burdensome younger brother, but some things are easier said than done...
