Guided art meditation
7 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A really gorgeous piece that works as a guided meditation of images. There is a thin sequence of events that you could call a narrative but that is merely a vehicle for the strong visuals. The pacing of the movie is purposely slow.

The film seems to revolve around the Shinto nuptials of a foreign couple on a whaling ship. The setting as well as the ceremony transforms the couple after their 'commitment' solidifies their union.

This is definitely a movie to be seen and reflected on. Imagages from the movie will continue to pop up long after you forget the logical sequence of events which attests to the primal nature of the work itself.
