Overview

With interesting but thoughtful messages, the film presents a chaos of a family in Tokyo. As a sudden blackout leads the whole city into chaos, the father decides to take his family to mother´s hometown. They manage to reach the airport but all flights are cancelled. They find bicycles and start a long journey.

Following the recipe for disaster, the film never heads for her hometown. Rather, it satirizes the absurdity of urban civilization and criticizes the incompetence of contemporary people. Even in their struggles, the director never forgets to show his comic touch through a coal-powered locomotive and the breakdown of all function.

This is the very Shinobu film that is funny but sad as well as critical but sensible.

    With a light tone but thoughtful message, Yaguchi Shinobu´s Survival Family presents chaos to a family in Tokyo. As a sudden blackout leads the whole city into chaos, the father decides to take his family to his hometown Kagoshima. They manage to reach the airport but all flights are cancelled. Instead, they find bicycles and start a long journey.
    Following the framework of a disaster film, Survival Family satirizes the absurdity of urban civilization and criticizes the incompetence of modern people. Even in their struggles, the director never forgets to show his comic touch at the discovery of a coal-powered locomotive or the scenes were all functionality seems to breakdown. This film from Yaguchi Shinobu simultaneously refreshing yet sad, critical yet with a human heart. [LEE Sang-yong]
