NY Times review of Yamato (California)


Another great review for Yamato (California), this time on the New York Times!

“The jangling energy of the young filmmaker Daisuke Miyazaki’s second feature, Yamato (California), is a far cry from the gentle rhythms of In This Corner of the World. But Mr. Miyazaki’s angry young heroine, an aspiring rapper named Sakura, is a contemporary analogue of Mr. Katabuchi’s Suzu. The two films play like a natural pairing, bookends of the Japan-United States wartime experience.”
