The devastating earthquake/tsunami that hit Japan in 2011 has had a huge impact on Japan, and no filmmaker has had it be so prevalent in their work than Sion Sono. After 'Himizu', we now have Land of Hope, which deals with the subject a little more directly and with more reserve and maturity. The politics are raw and the metaphors on point - Japan is in danger of ignoring the risks at Fukushima. Land of Hope is set in Nagashima, which sounds a lot like Nagasaki and Hiroshima, a taste of the marriage between past and present that runs through the film like a red hot nerve. A thoughtful, unnerving study of human grief and new politics.
