(Fuwaku no Adagio)
by Tsuki INOUE
"People rejoice, the bright hope of Japanese cinema has made her first feature film. Placid on the surface, AUTUMN ADAGIO's languid restraint hides the same condensed intensity that characterised Tsuki INOUE's marvelous short THE WOMAN WHO IS BEATING THE EARTH. A movie that flows, until it erupts." Tom Mes, MidnightEye.com
