Midareru (Yearning)
In this depressing Japanese drama, a grocer continues to operate her husband's business long after he has killed himself. Her brother-in-law has been in love with her for ages. Eventually she gives in and a romance blooms until she suddenly rejects him in favor of her husband's memory. The jilted lover becomes so despondent that he too commits suicide. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It is best to begin a discussion of Mikio Naruse's Yearning by focusing on its concluding image."
