    Director Hirokazu Koreeda's debut; which follows the story of a woman and her grief after her husband inexplicably kills himself, is a subtly powerful beginning to one of Japan's greatest contemporary filmmakers.

    This is Jodorowsky's most personal and self-reflective work concerning themes of youth, love, sexuality, friendship, suicide and attempting to discover one's path in life.…
