Audience Reviews for Amalufi: Megami no hôshû (Amalfi: Rewards of the Goddess)

Director Hiroshi Nishitani brings the Japanese to Italy in Amalfi: Rewards of the Goddess.

For an investigative drama, the story intrigues enough from start to finish. The film is a bit lengthy, as it does reach 2 hours, and it does get dramatic from time to time with very little in the way of destructive or violent action; however, watching the clues to the mystery unfold is enough to avoid total boredom.

The visuals and landscapes of Italy are fantastic for a story lead by Japanese characters, even though at times it seems like the scenery is a distraction from the story itself. Sarah Brightman's "Time to Say Goodbye" is also a nice touch to the soundtrack of this picture.

The acting is solid, despite being hugely dramatic and seriously toned. Yuji Oda is a reasonable foreign diplomat to lead the film, while Yuki Amami tags along as the mother of the kidnapped girl. Erika Toda is the liveliest of characters that raises a little fun out of the drama.

As a whole Amalfi: Rewards of the Goddess is a watchable investigative Japanese film. Don't forget to check your pockets.
