A powerful affirmation of the immersive potential of cinema. It is a slow-burning epic chronicling the emotional journey of four thirty-something women in the misty seaside city of Kobe. As they navigate the unsteady currents of work, domestic, and romantic lives, an unexpected rift opens between that propels each to a new, richer understanding of life and love.

If this epic five hour film ended with the first disc (at the 3 1/2 hour point), it would have made quite a poignant film. Unfortunately, it dissolves into a mess of soap opera tropes in the last quarter.

A bit "epic" at 5-hour run-time. Visually unremarkable but emotionally resonant. Imagine the Dardenne brothers making The Makioka Sisters. Here, the 4 women are not sisters but are bonded by friendship and familial ties. Check out the visually lush and emotionally resonant Makioka Sisters DVD for comparison. Tanizaki Junichiro's book is a classic (original title Snow Flakes); as usual, screen adaptation lacked a certain je ne sais quoi...
