Cannes. The Mourning Forest.To catch up with initial reactions to Naomi Kawase's The Mourning Forest (site), which has won the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes, we can turn to Patrick Z McGavin, who, writing for Emanuel Levy's site, calls it a "sad, poetic feature about grief and loss experienced by two radically different people... Interestingly, at the 50th anniversary of Cannes, her movie Suzaku won the Camera d'Or for best first feature. Those who surrender to the plaintive moods are likely to find significant emotional rewards."
