The Voice Of Water

水の声を聞く

Nippon Cinema   ª 

When the world around you turns crazy, it’s hard to keep a cool mind. That’s the problem Minjung, a young Korean­Japanese woman, faces when she starts to play the oracle for the “Church of God’s Water”. It doesn’t exactly help that her father is hunted by yakuza loan sharks. A strong performance by his leading actress is the cornerstone for YAMAMOTO’s biting satire.
