Journey to the Shore 岸辺の旅 (KUROSAWA Kiyoshi 黒沢清 /2015/128 min)

Emotionally flattened by the long absence of her husband Yusuke, young piano teacher Mizuki barely bats an eye when he suddenly reappears in her apartment and explains that he drowned years ago in an accident. Together they embark on a journey to meet the people he befriended on his way through the afterworld.

A moving meditation on the meaning of life, love and loss, the film won Kiyoshi Kurosawa the directing prize in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival, the first Japanese to achieve the feat.
