YesAsia Editorial Description

One of the most visually beautiful movies ever made, Maboroshi no Hikari (a.k.a. Maborosi) is filmmaker Kore-eda Hirokazu's impressive first foray into fictional storytelling. For Maborosi, Kore-eda turns his documentary director's eye on the rugged landscape of the Western Japanese coast, which serves as a starkly sublime backdrop for a tale of one young woman's grievous loss and promise for spiritual renewal. The film draws on the traditions of Japan's past directorial masters Ozu and Mizoguchi, but it's also full of gorgeous moments that are purely Kore-eda's own. Maborosi anticipates the director's later narrative filmmaking masterpieces After Life and Nobody Knows, as well as featuring an early performance from international star Asano Tadanobu (Ichi the Killer).

Twentysomething Yumiko (Esumi Makiko, Pistol Opera) and her husband Ikuo (Asano) live in a small, run-down apartment in Osaka with their infant son. The young couple seems content with their life, but when Ikuo inexplicably commits suicide, Yumiko's entire world falls apart around her. Accepting an arranged marriage in a small fishing village, Yumiko and her child attempt a fresh start. Although she soon comes to love the raw beauty of her new home, Yumiko remains haunted by the memory of Ikuo and the mystery surrounding his sudden death.

Beauty of the Soul Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Maboroshi is an astonishingly beautiful story of grief and redemption, of abiding love and promise. The framework of the drama is the life of a gentle, caring woman. Soon after the birth of her son she has to come to terms with the unexpected death of her first husband. Her second marriage five years later places her in an unfamiliar seacoast world, far from the city. The tenderness of her second husband towards her and her young son gradually reaches her silent heart. What follows is a tapestry of acceptance, community, friendship, warmth, and affirmation.
