August 5, 2019
All in all, a worthwhile and satisfying film about one family's struggle to stay together in extraordinary circumstances.

Unfortunately, The Land of Hope is a total miss despite its heavy subject matter.

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.

The subject is one for indignation and urgency. But despite straightforward no-frills treatment in 'The Land of Hope,' nothing rises above the predictable ordinary.

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