Critic Reviews for Futatsume no mado (Still the Water)

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

Enigmatic, exotic, erotic: three adjectives commonly bandied about in discussion about Naomi Kawase's films. Not for her latest outing, though.

January 9, 2015 | Full Review…

It's clear that Japanese director Naomi Kawase has poured her heart and soul into every frame of this wishy-washy drama... That makes it all the more depressing that the end results are so resoundingly uninvolving and off-putting.

January 9, 2015 | Full Review…

A soporific drama devoted to thrashing out the meaning of love, life and death.

Still the Water has its shortcomings, but redundancy is not one, and while it may not be profound, it is far from simple.

March 12, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Kawase's imagery is haunting but oblique, resulting in a film that's beautiful to look at, but a tad baffling.

July 6, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

At times it's too schematic for its own good, but there's a musical quality which harmonises the script's rockier edges, and the use of diegetic song is powerful and engaging.
