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. – G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle, Mar 29, 2017

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. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Apr 6, 2017

Fresh: Solid yet subtly sphinxlike ... – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Mar 30, 2017

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. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Apr 7, 2017

Deep Emotions

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.
