Graceful goodbyes are said, then life moves on. The characters' urge for survival wins out, even if you're left shattered.
The Naked Island borders on kitsch. Still, once seen it is not easily forgotten-the myth of Sisyphus transposed to Tahiti.
Once its rhythms are set and we get to know the characters through their actions and interactions, The Naked Island develops a surprisingly strong narrative and emotional allure
'The Island/Hadaka no shima' could be depressing were it not for stark poetry of conception and realization by cinematographer Kiyomi Kuroda.
magnificent cinematography and the film is nearly without dialogue. between swaying boats on the water and the hypnotic music it lulled me to sleep a couple times. still well worth watching
