Critics reviews

One of Naruse’s most rewarding films, disguised as a throwaway project. The very good script is by veteran Ryozo Kasahara, whose odd career begins with some of Tomotaka Tasaka’s best-known films in the 30s, then accelerates in the 50s into a twenty-year run of busy commercial work. Naruse took his first producer’s credit here: I’ve seen no mention of his having worked on the script, but the indirection of the dialogue feels a lot like his writing.
