Summery: Mizuki's husband (Yusuke) drowned at sea three years ago. When he suddenly comes back home, she is not that surprised. Instead, Mizuki is wondering what took him so long. She agrees to let Yusuke take her on a journey.


Too much lethargic, unclear plotting and saccharine melodrama mean the gentle film is seldom as intriguing as its premise, even if Kurosawa as always provides arresting visual moments and has a commanding way of building atmosphere out of stillness. In its favor, it has to be said that Journey to the Shore is far less drippy, trite or ponderous than the other Japan-set film in Cannes about the strange byroads of grief and the mystical passageway between life and death, Gus Van Sant's The Sea of Trees.
