Naoki and Kozue waiting for the bus

I think Eureka is one of those great movies that you want to keep going back again and again.

Without going into a plot summary or possible spoilers, here are my feelings about the movie:

There are events that happen in life that need time to resolve. We may call them life-changing events, they happen whether we like it or not. There is a cycle of head-on collision with anger and frustration at first, then perhaps a period of time needed to make a simple decision to start-over and evolve. The time needed may be short or many years. Eventually we are faced with the decision to evolve, there is no other choice. We may become better human beings – lose our prejudices, care and do what’s needed. Perhaps the definition of such lofty actions also change. Perhaps from a different vantage point, they are the most natural thing to do.

I think the trailer (with it’s theme song Eureka, by Jim O’Rourke) does justice to what you can expect from the movie.
