Director: Ichikawa Kon 市川崑
Plot:Set in 1926 when Japanese tradition was much stronger, this standard drama looks at the inner workings of a small family, especially the relationship between a sister and brother.
Her Brother (Japanese: Otōto) is a 1960 Japanese drama film directed by Kon Ichikawa. It was entered into the 1961 Cannes Film Festival, where it won a prize for Special Distinction.
In order to achieve a desaturated look for the film, Ichikawa and cameraman Kazuo Miyagawa devised the cinematographic technique known as bleach bypass. Ichikawa had been inspired by the photography for John Huston's 1956 adaptation of Moby-Dick.
