Critics reviews

I needed a few viewings to love SOUND OF THE MOUNTAIN, perhaps because it’s a film more about absences than events… Naruse’s approach to the complex material is more poetic and allusive than usual: he sometimes cuts directly to closeups where establishing shots are expected, and often ends scenes with close shots that emphasize mystery instead of giving information.
