Description:
A mystical, dreamy story set in an ancient Japanese forest and sprinkled with supernatural elements, Vision focuses on a woman searching for a rare medicinal plant and uncovering traces of her past.

Jeanne is a French journalist who has come to Japan in search of "vision," a herb that appears once every 997 years and is said to vanquish weakness and agony in those who consume it. Upon arriving in Nara, she meets the taciturn Tomo and his mentor Aki, a charismatic prophet and keeper of the forests who claims to be 1000 years old. Not long after Tomo agrees to let Jeanne stay with him, Aki vanishes, yet a young man appears almost as if in her place. As the sacred moment of vision's return looms, past events are summoned, new connections are forged, and time itself seems to slip from its perceived order - yielding new possibilities for human existence.

"Vision sounds ethereal, but Kawase takes care to ground her film in tangible, sensuous things, such as trees, food, and the human touch. Binoche and Nagase endow the film with an open-hearted, near-palpable sense of desire, wonder, and wakefulness. This is a film about something most of us relegate to the margins of our daily lives, yet is arguably the most important thing we can experience in this life: oneness." (Cameron Bailey, Toronto International Film Festival)
