“An essential work of modern Japanese cinema”. Village Voice
Yumiko (Makiko Esumi) is troubled by the notion that she brings death to people close to her. Following the loss of her grandmother and husband, she remarries and begins to find happiness anew. But on a return to her old home for her brother’s wedding, a flood of troubling memories begins to haunt her…
Hirokazu Kore-eda’s debut film returns to our screens – a poetic, quietly devastating reflection on the lingering shadow of loss.
