The Goldfish Dreaming Of The Sea (2021) review [Japan Cuts 2021]

“Ogawa’s thoughtful lyricism that gives the emotionality of the performances their power to touch the spectator and enables her exploration of the difficulty to separate from one’s mother and the need for such separation to happen for subjective growth to resonate so vividly with the audience.” 

Short Movie Time: Yamome (2018)

A pleasant short film that highlights that deception in romance finds its ultimate support in the subject’s desire to be loved.

Flavour of Green Tea Over Rice (1952) review

A heartwarming and lighthearted narrative that shows how women, within the societal device of arranged marriage as well as within the modern device of marriages out of love, can find subjective happiness.
