    Four Sisters

    Nominated for Best Supporting Actress, Japan Academy Film Prize 1987


    “We’re closer than blood ties. We’re the true sisters.”

    Date & Time: 20/12/2020 (Sun) 7:30pm

    Japan | 1985 | 100 mins | In Japanese with English subtitles | 16mm | Colour

    The story of four sisters of the Kitazawa family from Kyoto who, as it turns out, are not blood relatives, tracing the romantic and familial relationships of the women along with their trials and tribulations as they experience the various vicissitudes of life. In the 1980s, Obayashi Nobuhiko was widely seen as a director specialising in teen idol films, directing many rising stars in their film debuts and breakthrough hits. This film stars four popular young stars of the day, Konno Misako, Asano Atsuko, Sawaguchi Yasuko and Tomita Yasuko, and Four Sisters was seen as an updated version of the classic film The Makioka Sisters when it was released. However, unlike its gentle and delicate predecessor, Obayashi’s work, adapted from Oyama Kazuhide’s teen manga, starts out as lighthearted and playful but takes on a tragic life and death weightiness towards the end, running the full gamut of emotions from joyfulness to tears.
