Masato Harada’s moving period drama about the relationship between a self-centered writer and his ageing mother draws on an autobiographical novel by Yasushi Inoue. Kosaku (Koji Yakusho, Shall We Dance?), married with four daughters, is a successful writer and tyrannical husband and father. When his mother (Kirin Kiri) begins to display signs of dementia, duty demands that he take care of her. She moves in and, as her grip on reality loosens, facts about the past–specifically why she saw fit to abandon her son after the war–come to light. Chronicle is an unabashedly emotional epic with shades of Yasujiro Ozu’s melodramatic masterpieces. Winner of the Special Grand Prix at the Montreal World Film Festival.

THIS IS A USA PREMIERE.

 
 

 

 


About the International Film Showcase

For those who enjoy extraordinary movies not made available to the general public, the INTERNATIONAL FILM SHOWCASE at the Orinda Theatre is what you are looking for.

For a minimum of seven days each month we will screen a feature film that has never been released commercially in our area. Some will never be available to rent or download.

This project is the brainchild of Efi Lubliner and Jo Alice Canterbury. For years Efi and Jo Alice have been screeners/attendees at festivals around the country and have compiled a list of films which they believe deserve wider distribution and recognition throughout the United States. After repeatedly recommending their favorite films to friends, they were frustrated to discover that these gems were neither screened in local theaters nor released on DVD. Thus, the birth of the INTERNATIONAL FILM SHOWCASE.

Please check this site regularly for information on upcoming films, trailers and reviews. Make sure to tell your friends and we look forward to seeing you at the movies!
