The cinematography by Akiko Ashizawa ensures that their vacation is always lovely to behold, but almost everything else about this odd, elliptical drama is frustrating.

Overall the tone is one of quotidian melancholy, emphasising how people cope with grief by getting on with working, cooking and taking long walks, as if Yasujiro Ozu had made an episode of that TV show The Ghost Whisperer.

A neat concept, but dull as all hell.

May 19, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The film remains too pallid and diffuse, the development of its mood and characters suffering as a result.

Fans of Kurosawa's earlier psycho-thrillers may desire more eeriness and visual panache, but those who've accepted the helmer's conscious change of tune and pace should be gently touched.

While admirers of the director's work might sit still for the glacial pacing, the overlong film becomes steadily less involving after a promising setup, trading mystery for a sentimental vein fed by its sudsy romantic score.
