Movie Info

Jeanne, a French journalist, comes to Japan in search of 'Vision', a rare medicinal herb said to strip away all spiritual anguish and weaknesses in human beings. She knows that 'Vision' only appears once every 997 years under special conditions and that time is near. Aki, a wise villager who knows the forest well, prophesies the arrival of the mysterious 'One' and then disappears. Tomo, who was devoted to Aki, works as a keeper of the forests and is beginning to sense, instinctively, recent changes in the mountains. Is there a connection between the disappearance of Aki and the changes taking place in the forest? Will Jeanne succeed in finding the phantom herb Vision? A millennial event is taking place in the Yoshino mountains of Nara, opening a door to the One and the true potential of human existence.

The final result is a mixed hessian bag of Kawase's best and worst creative impulses; still, buoyed by Binoche's ever-disarming presence, it should be her most widely distributed work to date.

The soporific pace and twee quasi-environmentalist, semi-mystical guff about life cycles and dreams foretold will annoy some viewers.

Speeches of spiritualized sentimentality. [Full review in Spanish]

I think "Vision" had all the elements of becoming a naturalistic, art-house romantic story, but Kawase did not manage to restrict the pretentiousness quite frequently appearing in her works, at least not in the degree she did it for "Radiance"

If you frequently immerse yourself in Japanese cinema, the chances are that you will love this film. If it's still exotic to you, be prepared to merely admire it.

The artifice of the story ends up flooding the story in the name of a complex spirituality. [Full Review in Spanish]
