Like a surreal version of Bergman’s Fanny and Alexander, Katsuhito Ishii’s quiet masterpiece follows the Haruno family’s weird hijinks in rural Japan. A hypnotist father, an unconventional housewife, an eccentric grandfather and a brother-and-sister combo respectively battling puberty and a house-sized version of herself make up this touching and humorous tableau that often feels more like a dream than a film.
