Berlin Film Review: ‘Fukushima, mon amour’

fukushima-mon-amourThe film I mentioned earlier was reviewed by Variety. It was well-received. Some quotes from the review

“rapturous response at the Berlinale”

“Although she employs blunt metaphors involving tea ceremonies and geishas… Doerrie [the director] doesn’t presume to understand or verbalize what the living victims of such cataclysmic misfortune feel. Instead, her penchant for drawing awkward misfits allows her to portray both German and Japanese protagonists alike as strangers in a strange land, and to dramatize the survivors’ difficulty in comprehending their  situation.”
