“Has a fine-tuned sense for everything from period décor to social mores…a tale of illicit adult love witnessed by a pure-hearted young housemaid…Quietly evokes the era’s many tragedies of hopes denied and futures aborted.” – Mark Schilling, The Japan Times

“An instant classic…another masterpiece in director Yamada’s long filmography.” – Andrew Chan, HK Neo Reviews

Veteran director Yôji Yamada (The Twilight Samurai) brings us another in his esteemed series of poignant period films focusing on key eras in Japan’s historical past. Here, in The Little House (Chiisai Ouchi, 2014), the time frame is 1931-1945, as Japan drifts towards war – but while the sociopolitical aspects make an important backdrop, Yamada zeros in on a deeply personal story: the doomed illicit love between a married matron (Takako Matsu) and her husband’s artistic colleague (Hidetaka Yoshioka), as observed and later recalled by an innocent servant girl (Haru Kuroki). Shot by Masashi Chikamori, and featuring a lovely score by Joe Hisaishi.
