In acclaimed director Koji Fukada’s Cannes winner, an unassuming family man hires an enigmatic acquaintance from his past resulting in unexpected consequences for him and his loved ones.
Married couple Toshio and Akie live a happy – if predictable – life with their young daughter, Hotaru. One day, Yasaka, hauntingly played by Tadanobu Asano (ICHI THE KILLER), a mysterious acquaintance from Toshio’s past, arrives at the family’s home. Although he is fresh out of prison, Toshio impulsively offers Yasaka work at his small factory and a room. Soon, the ex-con is infiltrating the family’s life, flirting with Akie and coaching Hotaru on the harmonium. But when his secrets come to light, Yasaka’s true intentions come into question and the outcome is catastrophic.
“Fukada never resorts to melodramatics, and instead allows the carefully calibrated performances to give the movie its disquieting power.” – San Francisco Chronicle
“A quietly combustible tale of punishment and crime set in motion when a family lets a mysterious man move in with them, “Harmonium” makes the viewer question neat causal equations of sin, retribution, and atonement.” – Variety
“Throughout Harmonium, writer-director Kôji Fukada works in a rapt and lucid hyper-textural style that suggests a merging of the sensibilities of Alfred Hitchcock and Yasujirô Ozu.” – Slant Magazine
