Winner of the Un Certain Regard Best Director award in Cannes, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Journey to the Shore confirms the director's place as a contemporary auteur.
Mizuki's husband, Yusuke, drowned at sea three years ago. When he suddenly comes back home, she is not that surprised, instead, Mizuki wonders what took him so long. Together they embark on a journey to meet the people who helped him on his journey in a world where the living and the dead coexist in an almost normal manner.
Starring two of Japan's biggest actors, Tadanobu Asano and Eri Fukatsu, Kurosawa's film is a beautifully shot love story that challenges our usual conceptions of life, death and half-life. TheMasters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film to UK audiences in this special edition Dual Format release.
