Critic Reviews for Kibô no kuni (The Land of Hope)

All Critics (3)

Land of Hope tends to shout from a soapbox what little new it has to say, but it does boast some fine performances (especially from Natsuyago Isao as the family patriarch) and the odd poetic touch that speaks louder than any words.

Too much of the film works too well to even consider marking it as a failure, but this is one seriously erratic movie.
