My Neighbours the Yamadas
Animated family comedy chronicling the life and misadventures of a family in contemporary Japan. From Studio Ghibli and filmmaker Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies).
The Yamadas are a typical middle class Japanese family in urban Tokyo and their life is presented as a series of vignettes. With tales that range from the humourous to the heartbreaking, we see this family cope with life's little conflicts, problems and joys in their own way.
