Kabei: Our Mother is Yoji Yamada's latest feature film that tells the story of a mother and her family living during World War II. The film is set in Tokyo in the year 1940, the same time when the Japanese are invading China. The Nogami family's peace is shattered when the father, professor Shigeru Nogami (Mitsugoro Bando), is arrested. He is accused of being a communist due to his outspoken political views against the Japanese invasion of China. His dedicated wife, Kayo (Sayuri Yoshinaga), is suddenly banished to being a single mother, and she is forced to frantically work all day to take care of her two daughters. Her strict policeman father (Umenosuke Nakamura), hardly supports her in her task. Thankfully for Kayo (aka Kabei) and her daughters, her husband's sister and his former student Yamasaki (Tadanobu Asano), support her in her plight until the return of the professor. Despite the break out of WWII, Kayo has to keep up the family's spirit giving the film an emotional connotation with a message of peace.moreless
