Los Angeles Times - 06/12/2009
"Marked by the reserve and sincerity of its title character, KABEI: OUR MOTHER is the rare World War II film told from the perspective of the Japanese home front."
When her husband is accused of being a Communist, it changes life forever for Kayo Nogami and her family. Taking place in 1940s Tokyo and stretching into the horrors of World War II, KABEI: OUR MOTHER is a powerful, moving film of a mother's determination.
