Maborosi (1995), Kore-eda Hirokazu

With Maborosi (aka Maboroshi no Hikari), I have now seen all of Kore-eda Hirokazu’s feature films. It hasn’t been easy. At least Maborosi and Distance are out of print. Quite a few were non-region 1 dvds from Amazon.uk, and a couple from Amazon.jp. Every one of them were ★★★★ out of 5 stars or greater. I cannot wait for his latest, Our Little Sister (2015) aka Umimachi Diary (a Japanese josei manga (manga for women)), which I just heard about today, which is selected for the Palme d’Or at 2015 Cannes. If I’m lucky enough to catch a limited release showing, this would be my first Kore-eda seen on the big screen.
