Japanese with English subtitles. 137 minutes. Directed by Joe Odagiri. 2019.
Featuring an array of Japan’s top stars, this film follows Toichi (Akira Emoto), an aging ferryman in a remote Meiji-era community. His peaceful, cyclical existence is given meaning by the essential role he plays in transporting people, livestock and goods across the water.
When news arrives that a bridge is being built upstream, Toichi finds his life transformed in the name of progress. The sudden arrival of a young girl brings one more dimension to his life. This film has been lauded as having “stunning visuals and a stellar cast,” by The Japan Times.
