Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "After the Storm" has what the Japanese call mono no aware, which translates as "the pathos of things." It is a film that is aware of the of the transient, impermanent nature of life.
Fresh: The director keeps his characters and audience bobbing together over waters that grow deeper and deeper, until it's impossible to distinguish the everyday from the profound.
Fresh: Solid yet subtly sphinxlike ...
Fresh: For a film filled with broken promises, dead dreams, conniving duplicity and desperation, "After the Storm" has a surprisingly light touch and odd charm.
Story of a man who is failing in life and is struggling to understand why he cannot connect with his former wife and child. Very slow paced. Interesting, but not as great as Kordeea 's other films. Subtitles are done well.
