Mirai is an intimate story about a nascent jealousy that emerges in the life of 5-year-old Kuna upon the appearance of his younger sister, Mirai, in his home. It is all the more intimate because the director based the story on the observation of his own son's behaviour. As always, he has introduced a magical layer to reality: Kun discovers in the garden behind the house that he can travel in time - he sets off into the future to meet the teenage Mirai and into the past, where he meets his childhood mother and uncovers her character, which is as vicious as his own. He also meets his grandfather, a fan of motorcycles and a soldier. He learns that family myths are not necessarily just stories. Hosoda mixes timelines, unexpectedly transfers the characters from one space to another, interweaves the creations of imagination from here and now, and leads the viewer through the experiences of different generations. The director admits that his intention was to create a film that absorbs what is happening around him: Japanese society seems to be designed for adults and Mirai is supposed to remind us that children are a part of this society too, and we should not forget about them.
