Tragic love story about the photographer and explorer Felice Beato who travelled back to Japan in 1895 to seek his former wife O-Kiku.

Had not heard of this one before. Good film. Thanks for sharing, Jon.
Excellent, one of the best ‘unknown’ films of the last few decades. So glad to see it on here.
Would love to watch this movie, 🤔, but no hurry, still exploring the site. Thank you so much
Please refresh, Marcia, it should be working now 🙂
Thank you Jon: beautiful, really beautiful movie! The pictures, the subject: misunderstanding different cultures, and how alike we all are.
