Hush, Hashiguchi Ryosuke, 2001
Although this is a film about a subject which has been covered before (gay couple and then along comes a woman who decides that she would like to have a child by one of them and the fall-outs and tensions that are created by this) it is a really nice and I found genuinely affecting film.
The film also strays into the territory of the changing social circumstances of modern Japan as well as the, nicely handled, scenes where you are shown more about the family relationships that exist in the present day.
Nice performances and a nice soothing sound track (with just a little Japanese twist). Maybe the best recommendation that I can give this film is that I nearly broke my ankle playing football before I went to see it and I had to walk back home in the pouring rain...and I did so with a big smile on my face thanks to this film.
