The antithesis of Love Exposure. i can't stop looking at my watch while watching this film. At 217 minutes, this film feels a little bit overlong, in what was supposed to be a simple story.The beautiful cinematography, too bad, cannot help either
"The antithesis of Love Exposure", completely agree but not in a negative way. I'm a big fan of both films but more so Eureka. This film made me feel so strange and gloomy for a long time after viewing, a unique and challenging experience but one of my favorites. However, I certainly would not recommend it to most people I know.
A film about loss, rejection and healing.
The extraordinary journey of Sawai that, to save himself and two children, victims of a terrible shock with him, becomes father and their only guide, to lead to a painful but necessary rediscovery of life.
un film che merita il suo status di cult e la cui lunga durata non pesa minimamente. La trama è incentrata sul tema dell'elaborazione di un fatto drammatico: dopo un inizio folgorante e brutale, lo sviluppo prende i suoi tempi, riuscendo a costruire dei personaggi a tutto tondo (anche grazie a un grandissimo Kōji Yakusho). Fotografia e regia eccezionali, che riescono a sperimentare senza perdere in efficacia. Chapeau
Shinji Aoyama dives into the depths of human psychology all along this weird, unpredictable road movie. Since the shocking first minutes, "Eureka" shows the physical and affective journey of a strange group of people marked by this traumatic event, in a way that every frame of the film becomes essential for getting the whole picture. An odd film worth watching and reflecting upon.
