Critic Reviews for Journey To The Shore (Kishibe No Tabi)

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (2)

Fans of Kurosawa's earlier psycho-thrillers may desire more eeriness and visual panache, but those who've accepted the helmer's conscious change of tune and pace should be gently touched.

Top Critic

While admirers of the director's work might sit still for the glacial pacing, the overlong film becomes steadily less involving after a promising setup, trading mystery for a sentimental vein fed by its sudsy romantic score.

The lax pace and tone become so diffuse and diaphanous that the finer points of its story are obscured.

September 26, 2017 | Full Review…

It's an intriguingly different take on the supernatural, with Eri Fukatsu and Tadanobu Asano appealing as the leads, but Kurosawa draws it out to the point of tedium. An overemphatic score doesn't help either.

The cinematography by Akiko Ashizawa ensures that their vacation is always lovely to behold, but almost everything else about this odd, elliptical drama is frustrating.

Kurosawa manages to render his canonical obsessions of haunting, mourning and existentialism with deft, sublime cinematography.
