  1. Cat Mai's rating of the film Maborosi

    Maborosi reminds me of the blue light in Great Gatsby. Ebert puts this better, "Maborosi is not going to insult us with a simple-minded plot. It is not a soap opera. Sometimes life presents us with large, painful, unanswerable questions, and we cannot simply get over them.“

  2. Luca Di Gianni's rating of the film Maborosi

    (5+) To the limit of perfection.

  3. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Maborosi

    Superb cinematography by Masao Nakabori, a lovely script, creditable editing by the director, an amazing debut by the director Kore-eda and an unforgettable performance by Makiko Esumi. For me, there were two remarkable sequences--the spare bulb rolling by itself on the table and the funeral procession taken as a long shot (reminding you of "The Seventh Seal" and "8 1/2"). "The Third Murder " is, however, superior.

  13. Des Horne's rating of the film Maborosi

    Such an unusual and surprising debut. The way narrative time functions is really quite unstable throughout much of the film; the audience bears witness to the grief process of the protagonist as she endures a haze of confusing and devastating memories.

  14. Arisu's rating of the film Maborosi

    what a beautiful contemplative cinema

  15. Viginti_tres's rating of the film Maborosi

    Kore-Eda is a magic realist of sorts: his utterances of the everyday can cast an entrancing spell, but its a precarious one, porcelain, apt to shatter and reform multiple times across a movie. In those moments, it is transportive, but outside of them I felt kept outside the characters.

  16. FISCHER's rating of the film Maborosi

    Etonnant et séduisant ! www.cinefiches.com

  17. Kelley Dong's rating of the film Maborosi

    love the light coming into dark rooms, sometimes people turn away, sometimes they turn to face it and eventually walk outside

  18. Anastasija Mass's rating of the film Maborosi

    Crazy beautiful, quiet, serene and all that >>> and the story is there... then the quietness steps to the front so much that it fails to be sort of humble and be the carrier of the pain of the main character. The film is packed with gems though and it did Japan my soul.

  19. jonijtr's rating of the film Maborosi

    A melancholic yet devastating film, that shown in the most beautiful, poetic way

  20. NCMBianchi's rating of the film Maborosi

    [More like 4.5] Although some scenes might be a bit too long – yet bound to picture's message – the movie itself is outstanding: Kore-Eda used cinematography and music to create the perfect atmosphere to tell the story of how people can be lost in their thoughts regarding the human condition, and how such thoughts aren't always to be avoided. It's an excellent mixture of 80s elements and social traits of Japan.

  21. Kevin Costner's rating of the film Maborosi

    One of the most underrated japanese film & one of the most beautiful film ever. Absolutely heartbreaking film...

  22. CinemaHouse Productions's rating of the film Maborosi

    A story about the inability of a single woman, let alone mother, to express her guilt and melancholia for losing the people she had once loved. Extremely adept at immediately creating a tone of quiet sorrow. A magic realist intake with themes like the "will o’ the wisps" and psychological escapism through naturalism and the Japanese countryside. A beautiful piece of art. Hirokazu Kore-eda is Yasujiro Ozu's legacy.

  23. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Maborosi

    Nothing else I've seen by this director is anywhere near as good.
