Critic Reviews for The Whispering Star (Hiso hiso boshi)

All Critics (6) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (1)

  • As stark and deliberate as Tarkovsky, but as heartfelt and imaginative as the first thirty minutes of WALL∙E.

  • A unique entry in Sion Sono's filmography, and a film relatively difficult to watch, due to its minimalism and slow pace. However, it is a very beautiful and meaningful movie, which is bound to stay in memory due to its uniqueness

    December 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This is the film few could have imagined Sion Sono had in him: Stanley Kubrick meets Andrei Tarkovsky by way of Chantal Akerman's fascination with temporality and gendered ritual.

    August 25, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • Shot in monochrome to suggest the dreary drudgery of Yoko's existence... and with all its lines spoken in subdued tones..., The Whispering Star gently parcels out its messages about memory, loss, longing and loneliness over a leisurely duration.

    April 16, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Alas, while the visions of Fukushima and its wandering souls are undeniably haunting, one can't help but feel that The Whispering Star remains a sketch, its slow-drip seriality better suited to an installation than a feature film.

    November 29, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Though its scanty narrative and creeping pace hindered my engagement with the film, The Whispering Star is a well-crafted addition to Sono's oeuvre.
