This is a rare chance to see the 1995 debut of Hirokazu Kore-eda.This exquisitely beautiful film follows the spiritual odyssey of Yumiko a young Japanese woman recovering from her husbands inexplicable suicide. Several years pass, and Yumiko takes the train from Osaka to Noto, a fishing village on the sea of Japan, to marry a widower in a match arranged by a friend.She seems to find happiness in her new life, but the rugged seaside landscape, harsh weather and seasonal changes become powerfully emblematic of Yumikos emotional state. Powerful, deeply moving and filled with superb performances.
