Yarn about a young carer who follows an elderly patient into the forest, strives for the mythic, but ambition is undercut by its conveniently underarticulated affectations.

A film marked by lovely moments but which falls short of the lyrical heights to which it aspires.

Ultimately, The Mourning Forest is not so much flawed as it is unable to create a very powerful impression.

A sad, poetic feature about grief and loss, Naomi's uneven film requires a certain patience and understanding.

Beautifully photographed, but Uda steals the show as Shigeki.
