In Kore-eda’s much-lauded first feature length film a widow moves to the coast in an attempt to rebuild her life after her husband commits suicide.

Maborosi is the Kore-eda film that most closely resembles the work of that other Japanese master of quiet, contemplative home dramas, Yasujiro Ozu.

"A film of astonishing beauty." - Roger Ebert

"An essential work of modern Japanese cinema." - Village Voice
