Critic Reviews for Harmonium (Fuchi ni tatsu)

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (37)

  • Is there anything more gratifying than a sweepingly downcast story told in a uniquely exhilarating manner?

    July 21, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Tadanobu Asano, who plays the ex-con, has rarely been better, and Kanji Furutachi and Mariko Tsutsui are heartbreaking as the husband and wife.

    July 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • The spare, humanist influence of Ozu is plain to see here, but Fukada's tone is all his own, simultaneously shot through with violence and compassion.

  • It makes for a uniquely churning mix of detective story and recovery drama before it throws another wrenching reveal into the works.

    July 6, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Fukada never resorts to melodramatics, and instead allows the carefully calibrated performances to give the movie its disquieting power.

    June 21, 2017 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • If you treat Harmonium like a mood piece, and respond to it on that level, you'll find yourself thinking about it long after you watch it.
