Nobuhiko Ôbayashi
Japan, 1988


I'm fascinated when a movie has such disparate posters. Like, we're gonna find a way to sell this to everyone on the planet. It's a thriller ... and also a charming family reunion ... and also a mediation of fantasy ... and also an Ozu from the 1950s ... and I think we need a fifth poster.

THE DISCARNATES was the first adaptation of Taichi Yamada's novel 異人たちとの夏 / Ijintachi to no natsu / Strangers [literal translation: Summer of the Strange People). Both are the basis - loosely adapted - for Andrew Haigh's ALL OF US STRANGERS.
