In this sci-fi dark comedy, members of a seemingly normal Tokyo family discover that they are aliens from different planets at war over Earth’s fate. Since humans have so badly botched Earth’s management, some of the aliens want to exterminate them, while others want to help save the planet before it’s too late. Inspired by a 1962 Yukio Mishima novel, director Daihachi Yoshida updates his source’s concerns about nuclear annihilation to today’s pressing issue of human-caused environmental destruction in a surprising and entertaining way. “His film is a thrill to watch—beautiful and dreamy even with its hectic tone. If there’s still a child in you who dreams of spaceships, if you ever look at the world around you and wonder if it’s coming to an end or if you’re just looking for beauty at the edges of reality, this movie is for you” (Vancouver International Film Festival).
