Beautiful
3 July 2014 | by dominic_brantSee all my reviews

Sometimes when a film is recommended to me, I'm disappointed. Not this time.

This beautiful shot film is very powerful. The acting is natural and believable. In terms of the action, for the most part, it might appear that not a lot happens. The characters are moody, devious, misguided and lovable. Yet, the longer it plays, the 'more' appears to be going on. Like the best short stories, it's not until later that things begin to fall into place. And when they do, I'll challenge you not to be moved.

There are subtleties of plot that are hard to explain. Sometimes the action doesn't seem to make sense. There appear to be references that don't have a hook. Don't worry, this film is like life: when you're in the moment, you don't see the bigger picture.

At the risk of heightening your expectations, I too am going to recommend this film.

If you're in any way a fan of Asian/Japanese indie cinema, I really don't think you'll be disappointed.
