“Every traveler is a being of passage. We are reminded of this thought unceasingly in this modest, poetic film about Japan. Hokkaido does not tell a story, but rather poses questions of his own sensitivity in the reflections provided to him by the spaces he traverses. The impact goes well beyond the words; verbal signs lead not to the knowledge of, but to the recognition of others.” Hélène Ostromogilski
