by Shinji AOYAMA


Kozue, his sister Naoki and driver Makoto are the sole survivors of a bus hijacking. They meet up two years later to try to surmount the trauma together. For this, they set out on a long road trip around the island of Kyushu. In the early 2000s, Shinji Aoyama, weaned on European cinema and post-rock, gave us almost four hours of wanderings filmed in widescreen with sepia tones. The film title derives from Jim O’Rourke’s song, which accompanies the movement of the silent characters. Intended, according to the filmmaker, as a psychological thriller (first part) and a road movie (second part), Eureka is a post-apocalyptic film that, like Japanese cinema of that time, works on the reconstruction of people and groups.
