Part of the Kore-eda Retrospective.

After the resounding success of "Shoplifters" last year, we are revisiting the past works of Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda.

We start this Sunday afternoon season with his first feature film, Maborosi.

"Maborosi" is a Japanese film of astonishing beauty and sadness, the story of a woman whose happiness is destroyed in an instant by an event that seems to have no reason. Time passes, she picks up some of the pieces, and she is even distracted sometimes by happiness. But at her center is a void, a great unanswered question. - Roger Ebert
