United States | 2013 | Zachary Heinzerling
Here is one of the most acclaimed movies of 2013—an intricate, intimate portrait of 80-year-old Brooklyn-based Japanese artist Ushio Shinohara, who punches canvases with paint-covered boxing gloves, and his illustrator wife Noriko, who has neglected her own artistic career for his. With surprising access to their private life, filmmaker Zachary Heinzerling captures the couple’s combative, tempestuous 40-year marriage—as well as their stubborn love for each other. "More than a great documentary. It's a great film." -Wall Street Journal.
82 min. Blu-ray. Cleveland theatrical premiere.
