Aru asa, soup wa

Izumi Takahashi Japan, 2004

Rob R's rating of the film The Soup, One Morning

If Raymond Carver had written plays and lived in Japan, this is what he would have created. Unlike any number of overrated movies, _The Soup, One Morning_ really is closely observed, and leaves things unsaid that are nevertheless something to say. And while no one loves SD video, the meaning of the images comes through clearly.
