Journey To The Shore: Not as beautiful as expected
3 July 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I heard good things about director Kiyoshi Kurosawa, I heard his movies are works of art and tear at the emotional heartstrings like a cat through newly decorated wallpaper.

The premise is beautiful, the performances aren't bad and I had such high hopes but came away unfulfilled. I'm not saying Journey To The Shore is a bad film, I'm just saying they took a great concept and neutered it.

Telling the story of a widow going on a road trip with her late husbands ghost I found myself struggling to care about the characters and simply not understanding the rules to ghosts and their connection to this world.

The last time I was this confused about ghosts in a movie it was the Paranormal Activity series and the thing I was confused about was why in the blue hell I was watching them!
