Movie Info

The Aso, a family of four, live in the old town of Nara. On the day of the Jizo Festival in the dizzying heat of midsummer, Kei, one of the Aso's twin boys suddenly disappears, as if he had been spirited away... For the family left behind, the flow of time stopped on that day. Five years later. Seventeen-year old Shun, the remaining twin, is a high school student, a member of the art club. He is working on a life-sized drawing of his brother, who he has been unable to forget. He and his childhood friend, Yu, share a tentative attraction, but they are awkward around each other. Shun and Yu and their families all carry emotions that have no release. Each of them is searching for a way out. Then, one day, Yu finds out the secret of her birth. Shun learns what became of his brother. With their losses concealed deep in their hearts, Shun and Yu are about to make a move forward with their lives.

Audience Reviews for Sharasojyu (Shara)

½

Kawase continues to tackle family issues that reflect those of her own - issues she had already talked about in previous films -, but the result is too uneven, unresolved, emotionally detached, bland even and feels like more of the same for those who are familiar with her work.
