誰も知らない

是枝裕和 (監督/脚本/編集/プロデュース) 作品 (2004年/141分)
トラックからアパートに荷物が運び込まれてゆく。引っ越してきたのは母けい子 (YOU) と明 (柳楽優弥) 、京子 (北浦愛)、茂 (木村飛影)、ゆき (清水萌々子) の4人の子供たち。だが、大家には父親が海外赴任中のため母と長男だけの二人暮らしだと嘘をついている。母子家庭で4人も子供がいると知られれば、またこの家も追い出されかねないからだ。その夜の食卓で母は子供たちに「大きな声で騒がない」「ベランダや外に出ない」という新しい家でのルールを言い聞かせた。 子供たちの父親はみな別々で、学校に通ったこともない。それでも母がデパートで働き、12歳の明が母親代わりに家事をすることで、家族5人は彼らなりに幸せな毎日を過ごしていた。そんなある日、母は明に「今、好きな人がいるの」と告げる。今度こそ結婚することになれば、もっと大きな家にみんな一緒に住んで、学校にも行けるようになるから、と。ある晩遅くに酔って帰ってきた母は、突然それぞれの父親の話を始める。楽しそうな母親の様子に、寝ているところを起こされた子供たちも自然と顔がほころんでゆく。だが翌朝になると母の姿は消えていて、代わりに20万円の現金と「お母さんはしばらく留守にします。京子、茂、ゆきをよろしくね」と明に宛てたメモが残されていた。この日から、誰にも知られることのない4人の子供たちだけの "漂流生活"が始まった。

Language: Introduction by Donald Richie in English

Nobody Knows (dare mo shiranai)


The prize-winning picture based on the 1988 abandonment of four young children by their mother. Kore'eda (director of Maboroshi and After Life) turns the case into a gripping and appalling experience. The fourteen year-old Yagira Yuya won the "Best Actor" Award at the 2004 Cannes Festival, and director Kore'eda created a new kind of fictional documentary. Nobody Knows (Dare mo shiranai) Written, directed and edited by Kore'eda Hirokazu Photographed by Yamazaki Yutaka With Yagira Yuya, Kitaura Ayu, Kimura Hiei, Shimuzu Momoko, Kan Hanae, "You." (2004), 141mins. Four siblings live happily with their mother in a small apartment in Tokyo. The children all have different fathers. They have never been to school. The very existence of three of them has been hidden from the landlord. One day, the mother leaves behind a little money and a note, asking her 12 year old boy to look after the others. And so begins the childrenfs odyssey, a jurney nobody knows. Through engulfed by the cruel fate of abandonment, the four children do their best to survive in their own little world, devising and following their own set of rules. When they are forced to engage with the world outside their cocooned universe, the fragile balance that has sustained them collapses. Their innocent longing for their mother, their wary fascination toward the outside world, their anxiety over their increasing desperate situation, their inarticulate cries, their kindness to each other, their determination to survive on wits and courage...

His Public People, Private People has been called "unforgettable" by Tom Wolfe and of his two collections of essays, A Lateral View and Partial Views, Susan Sontag has said: "Donald Richie writes about Japan with an unrivaled range, acuity, and wit."

Richie has lived in Japan for most of his life. Arriving on New Year's Day, 1947, he worked as feature-writer and film critic for The Pacific Stars and Stripes. After graduating from Columbia University in 1953, he returned to Japan as film citic for The Japan Times. He has written for Newsweek, The Nation, Variety, The New York Times, The Guardian, Harper's, Atlantic Monthly, and all major films magazines. In addition he presented the first retrospective of the Japanese film director Yasujiro Ozu at the 1962 Berlin Film Festival and has since acted as guest director of the Telluride Film Festival, and served on the juries at the Hawaii, Lacarno, Thessaloniki, and Kerala Festivals.
In addition to writing a column for The Japan Times, lecturing around the world, and continuing to lend his distinctive voice to Japanese studies, Donald Richie teaches film at Temple Universityfs Japan Campus.
