Winner of the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize at Cannes, Harmonium burrows beneath the surface harmony of a typical Japanese family to reveal the forces that threaten to destabilise it. Toshio (Kanji Furutachi), his wife Akie (Mariko Tsutsui) and their daughter Hotaru seem perfectly content with their lives until Toshio offers work and lodgings to old acquaintance Yasaka (Tadanobu Asano). What is the nature of their relationship? Where has Toshio been before now and why is he such an unsettling presence? A subtle, slow-burning thriller steeped in tragedy.

...its cinematic and intellectual rigor should resound at quality festivals.
