Sharasojyu

Naomi Kawase Japan, 2003

Xavier Coronel's rating of the film Shara

I've always found this to be one of the most beautiful films there are that speak of loss and mourning. Kawase's camera moves, follows and wanders through Nara and it's characters like a vigorous phantom with the curiosity of a child, discovering the visible and the invisible, since it's first awakened from the darkness to it's final flight of victory. A beautiful experience, it shouldn't be missed.
