Narayama bushiko

Keisuke Kinoshita Japan, 1958

Daniel S.'s rating of the film Ballad of Narayama

With a so gorgeous production design, the film could have been a Japanese fairy tale. It's not. The last scene atop Mount Narayama is one of the most moving I've seen in months. Masterpiece, no doubt.
