If "Farewell to the Land" is trying to illuminate the pointless and dull existence of a loser with a life that is going nowhere, by making the viewer feel the same way, then the film maker has succeeded. Slow, mumbling, pointless film with utterly flat photography and uninteresting characters, this one holds zero entertainment value. And at 2 1/2 hours in length, it becomes an endurance test. I can't think of any reason to recommend tracking this movie down. There are certainly more worthwhile character studies for those looking for that kind of movie.

The film opens with the drowning deaths of farmer Yukio's two sons. Their deaths send him on a course of self-destruction.
