Starts promisingly but disintegrates into a dreary, humorless soap opera.
Although the editing might have been tighter, Hush! sympathetically captures the often futile lifestyle of young people in modern Japan.
If the incidents are piled on one another without adding up to much, they provide telling social details.
Hashiguchi covers this territory with wit and originality, suggesting that with his fourth feature -- the first to be released in the U.S. -- a major director is emerging in world cinema.
Hashiguchi uses the situation to evoke a Japan bustling atop an undercurrent of loneliness and isolation.
A feel-good movie that doesn't give you enough to feel good about.
What might've been an exhilarating exploration of an odd love triangle becomes a sprawl of uncoordinated vectors.
Be patient with the lovely Hush! and your reward will be a thoughtful, emotional movie experience.
Though it breaks no new ground, it's quietly funny and moving, a welcome change of pace from the norm.
While not quite a comedy, the film tackles its relatively serious subject with an open mind and considerable good cheer, and is never less than engaging.
Hashiguchi vividly captures the way young Japanese live now, chafing against their culture's manic mix of millennial brusqueness and undying, traditional politesse.
Ryosuke has created a wry, winning, if languidly paced, meditation on the meaning and value of family.
