Shigeki happily lives in a small retirement home. Machiko, one of the home's staff, pays special attention to him. However, she is secretly haunted by the loss of her child. After celebrating Shigeki's birthday, Machiko takes him on a drive in the countryside. Driving along scenic back-roads, the car is forced into a ditch by a land-slide, sending the duo on a journey of discovery. As Shigeki heads off into the forest, Machiko is forced to follow. After two exhausting days trudging through the woods, they finally arrive at Shigeki's wife's tomb.

The film is quiet, even gentle in its pacing, but has a great deal to say.

Audience Reviews for Mourning Forest (Mogari no mori)


Kawase is trying to make a sensorial film in which little is said and we are supposed to feel in our hearts the pain that troubles the characters, but she ends up creating something terribly dull and empty that wants to look a lot more profound than it is.
