Critic Reviews for Kûchû teien (Hanging Garden)
Another unpredictable left turn in story and stylistic terrain for helmer Toshiaki Toyoda.
An absolute treat... stellar sound design... Hanging Garden rests in a compelling balance between frank cynicism and black magic realism.
Audience Reviews for Kûchû teien (Hanging Garden)
The Kyobashi family believe in complete honesty with each other. Except of course for the secrets they're not letting on about like adultery, deep inadequacy and love hotels. If it was an English film it would play like a farce. As a Japanese drama, it plays less predictably and surprisingly touching. Definitely worth a watch.
One of the best modern Japanese films which are about family. I don't think all of mise-en-scene that the director, Tyoshiaki Toyota, who started as and is a writer, does is successful (most of all, I don't think it was necessary to shake camera that much afterall), and casting seems slightly wrong, but still, I liked the last 30 minutes of the film very much.
I love this movie. There are some absolutely incredible scenes. I'm writing this review long after I saw the movie so I don't remember the specifics.
