Review: Films Set In Japan – The Sea Of Trees (2015)

The infamous Aokigahara is at the centre of this fairly slow moving 110 minute film directed by Gus Van Sant. Located at the northwest base of Mount Fuji, this 35-square-kilometre forest has the nickname of Suicide Forest or Sea of Trees and sees an American man called Arthur Brennan (Matthew McConaughey) travel to Japan to kill himself in the forest where he ends up meeting Takumi Nakamura (Ken Watanabe); a Japanese man  who has the same thoughts. 632 more words
