Critic Reviews for A Balance

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2)

  • A Balance gives a revealing insight into Japan's culture of shame, which spreads like a stain through the lives of anyone touched by rumour or wrongdoing.

  • "A Balance" is a tremendous film, one that truly reinvigorates the largely preterit family drama genre, and one that touches the borders of the masterpiece, which it would have surpassed if the ending was a bit different.
