If this epic five hour film ended with the first disc (at the 3 1/2 hour point), it would have made quite a poignant film. Unfortunately, it dissolves into a mess of soap opera tropes in the last quarter.

A bit "epic" at 5-hour run-time. Visually unremarkable but emotionally resonant. Imagine the Dardenne brothers making The Makioka Sisters. Here, the 4 women are not sisters but are bonded by friendship and familial ties. Check out the visually lush and emotionally resonant Makioka Sisters DVD for comparison. Tanizaki Junichiro's book is a classic (original title Snow Flakes); as usual, screen adaptation lacked a certain je ne sais quoi...
