  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database

Described as a slow burning, very Japanese coming of age drama, Still the Water is a lyrical and moving film set on the sub tropical island of Amami where the land and seascapes provide a compelling backdrop to the story.

Kyoko and Kaito are teenagers with complex relationships with their parents – their own developing relationship is brought into focus by the discovery of a tattooed body washed up on the beach.


Still the Water has an idealism and a tranquility. Kawase's distinctive serenity and generosity of spirit remain valuable qualities in the cinema
