Critics reviews

No other Naruse film contains so much of his personality and yet gives me so little pleasure... As always, Naruse is attentive to the grading of the drama, building up to Hiroko's moments of crisis with accelerated cutting and visual connections among the activities in the family house. But there's something unsatisfying about both the setup and the resolution of Hiroko's problem.
