Featured reviews for

Sway
MidnightEye, by Tom Mes source: http://www.midnighteye.com/reviews/sway.shtml
«Sway is a film on the gaping chasms between countryside and city, between family life and 'freeter' existence, between patriarchy and individualism.»
Lunapark6, by luna6 source: http://lunapark6.com/sway-yureru.html
«“Yururu” is a unique psychological thriller that examines the relationship between two very different brothers. Minoru who lives with his father, represents old world Japan, while his cosmopolitan younger brother, Takeru, represents new world Japan. ... Sway is a very impressive film that I would recommend without hesitation.»
The Japan Times Online, by MARK SCHILLING source: http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/ff20060714a3.html
«The film, however, is anything but a Koreeda clone. It begins as a sensitively observed drama of family and fraternal strife, but in the second act the action shifts to a courtroom, with conflicting testimonies that recall Akira Kurosawa's "Rashomon." ... Brilliant in its parts, "Yureru" is built with structural flaws. »
