    'Don Quixote' is a film that questions whether you want to be a dreamer or a straight laced realist. It raises the question about incomplete films, possibly better than any other.

But those who have seen Kore-eda's films know they are completely different and brilliant in their own ways.

    The death of Ryota's father, who's rather idiosyncratic nature serves as a dead weight…
