  • In Our Neighbor, Miss Yae (34) Shimazu turns the lazy rhythms of First Steps Ashore into something of a mission statement. This is a laid-back comedy in which nothing much happens, a series of sketches rather than a coherent narrative.

  • [Our Neighbor, Miss Yae] is a clear stand-out, the story of two neighboring families—two young brothers on one side, two young sisters on another—so closely connected as to practically be conjoined, a simple, homely story filled with casual, naturalistic performances, with every emotional beat invested with fine-grain detail.
