A Face from the Past

Natsukashi no kao

Directed by Mikio Naruse
Japan, 1941
Short, Drama, War


A sweet and touching short war-time film. A mother, her young son, and a daughter-in-law. The boy and his friends are fond of model airplanes. One day, the boy’s plane gets stuck at the top of a tree, and he hurts his leg trying (in vain) to get it down.
