The Harimaya Bridge
An American father mourning the recent loss of his estranged son travels to a rural area of Japan to gather some of his late child's important belongings in this gentle drama starring Bennet Guillory, Saki Takaoka, Misa Shimizu, and Danny Glover. Upon arriving in Kochi Prefecture, a region steeped in tradition, the father discovers the destructive power of prejudice while finally learning about the son he never knew. The Harimaya Bridge also features Peter Coyote. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Essentially, a Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie with the picture-postcard beauty of a travelogue."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"The Harimaya Bridge is a movie about racism that's pretty narrow-minded in its own thinking."
‑ Tim Grierson, L.A. Weekly
"Part loving postcard to Japan, part redemption story reaching across both racial and cultural divides, The Harimaya Bridge manages to lift itself out of movie-of-the-week hokeyness with sheer charm and perseverance."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"It is a unique, complex, consciousness-raising accomplishment."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
