The Japanese Wife is an acquired taste. But if you’re the type of viewer who is willing to sacrifice pacing for poignance, I recommend you go for it.

Her films have all been different from one another: 36 Chowringhee Lane was a world apart from Mr and Mrs Iyer, which was again poles apart from 15 Park Avenue.

While watching Aparna Sen's latest film The Japanese Wife -- in Bangla, with pretty decent English subtitles -- it's hard not to recognise the director as one who crafts the film, the frames, the shots with extreme care.

In the age when borrowed experiments techniques and trend define the growth of cinema, but fails to find its audience, Aparna's film demands an audience. 'The Japanese Wife' is right up there and stands taller than those adventures revolving moving cameras and other stylers who have all the technique but not an elevating content.

The Japanese Wife fails to fully engage our emotions.
