Film (12A): "Maborosi" at Cramphorn Theatre
  • Cramphorn Theatre, Fairfield Road, Chelmsford
    CM1 1JG
  • Wednesday 6th May 8:00pm until 9:50pm
From 1995, this is the work which launched the feature film career of director Hirokazu Kore-eda. Guest entry available, £7.50 on the door.

Critics compared the film, when first released, with the work of directors such as Peter Greenaway and David Lynch. It is certainly sombre, ravishing, almost motionless in style, while the psychological motivation of the main character owes much to the apparently inexplicable suicide of her husband.
