The acting is good , the story as well - it is a coming of age story and still the movie seemed a bit too long and slow paced. I liked some of the scenes - and really admired what the young Akira did for his brothers and sisters - he was taking care of them when they were abandoned by their mother - locked between four walls - no one knew about them.

The story starts out with a mother and son moving into a new apartment, and all seems normal. The mother is cute and funny, and the son is smart and helpful. But as the story unfolds, you learn that there are two younger children safely hiding in suitcases. And yet later, an older daughter waiting at the train station until after dark to sneak in.

To be honest, I wonder how actually ended up watching this flick. If I recall it correctly, I read some good things about it on our TV magazine and I thought I might as well check it out. Usually, I don’t really care about true stories but this one was just really heartbreaking and, apparently, the original event called the Sugamo child abandonment case was actually even more worse (to think th... read more

Rewatched (2024) (18 movies items)

" In a small Tokyo apartment, twelve-year-old Akira must care for his younger siblings after their mother leaves them and shows no sign of returning. However, although he is very mature for his age, his youth eventually catches up with him, thereby revealing his deficits. The responsibility of parenting several children was a heavy mantle to bear, which sees Akira making unwise decisions that threaten the family's survival. "

" Date: 11/28/2020 Viewed: Itunes First Viewing Note: I always wanted to see this movie for the last 15 years now ever since I saw a trailer for it online back in 2005. This movie has no official Region 1 release, but it is now on Itunes at the moment. After watching this movie on Itunes, I loved it. Nobody Knows is a great movie from start to finish. I love the acting in this movie because everyone did a wonderful job of playing believable characters. Hirokazu Kore-eda (the director) did a won"

"1.5. Hirokazu Koreedan köyhyyskuvaus tekee kaiken paremmin kuin ohjaajan maailmanmainetta niittänyt Shoplifters, joka on suunnilleen Nobody Knowsin toisinto. Lapsille toivoisi hyvää, hahmoja on vaikea syyllistää moraalisesti arveluttavasta toiminnastaan huolimatta ja pidemmän päälle jatkuvassa turvattomuudessa eläminen rikkoo paljon."
