Claude Gagnon's deceptively simple story about a young, depressed Canadian who is sent to visit his uncle in Japan, is sublimely riveting, complex and erotic. The uncle is a master potter, and the depiction of the Kamataki process of marathon firing is exhilarating! Best Director, Montreal Film Festival.
