Yumiko is a young woman from Osako, whose life is defined by the death of her loved ones. She lost her grandmother at the age of twelve, and her husband Ikuo, who is the reincarnation of her grandmother to her, commits suicide some months after the birth of their child. Once more Yumiko loses a person she had really loved. Five years later she marries Tamio, a man who lives by the sea together with his eight-year-old daughter from his first marriage.

Press

"Ich hatte das Glück, Mabaroshi zu entdecken. Die unglaubliche Einfachheit des Films tauchte mich in eine Flut von Emotionen, liess mich das Leben und Schickal einer jungen Unbekannten tei len, einer mir fernen und doch so nahen Frau Ergriffen vom ruhigen, friedvollen Fluss der Geschichte, wurde ich von grosser Dankbarkeit erfüllt. Der Film gab mir diese besondere intime Vertrautheit zurück, jene geheimnisvolle Identität, welche nur in Japan ihren Ausdruck findet."
Jeanne Moreau
