  7. Masami Akita's rating of the film Black Rain

  8. Teruma Kato's rating of the film Black Rain

    I think this should be made a required viewing at schools around the world. Such a powerful movie. BW photography is amazing in this one. This movie feels like a very old movie, but it was made rather recently (1989). I think I thought that way because it has all the elements of a classic cinema.

  9. Mary Anne Magajes's rating of the film Black Rain

    BLACK AND WHITE (COLOR?) FILM.

  12. Pegah Sayyadi's rating of the film Black Rain

    Just watched this and it is totally recommended, such a passionate n touching movie.. The extent of pain felt by these "already" hurt people is unbelievable!

  13. flobota's rating of the film Black Rain

    Pretty quiet story about Hiroshima and what happened after the bomb. Extremely good actors and music. The death and suffering is rousing, not only in the the scenes right after the bomb fell.

  14. Adam Suraf's rating of the film Black Rain

    Master film-maker Shohei Imamura's award winning study of Hiroshima and the aftermath of the bombing. Disturbing, moving, and poetic, like much of the director's filmography, aggressive violence has far reaching and devastating repercussions.

  15. REH1101's rating of the film Black Rain

    If you are in the market for a copy of this film, go with the VHS because the picture quality is an enormous step up from the overpriced non-anamorphic DVD (which is pure shit.)

  16. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film Black Rain

    Haunting, harrowing, heartbreaking hell of Hiroshima after the bomb.

  17. Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film Black Rain

    Bleak, depressing, horrifying, Shohei Imamura's Black Rain is the definitive film about the nuclear fallout of Hiroshima. Following one family over the years as they deal with the effects of radiation it never looses its quiet power, and Imamura's black and white imagery is nothing short of stunning. My first encounter with his work and I look forward to seeing a lot more.

  18. Peter Nellhaus's rating of the film Black Rain

    I don't understand why more of the better known critics didn't list this with the best DVDs of 2009. The deleted ending, filmed in color, is one of the most eye opening endings. I also read Ibuse's novel, and Imamura only took a small part, and created the rest of the narrative. In the novel, Yoshiko, is not the main character. The original ending by Imamura is look at how Hiroshima has been remembered.

  19. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film Black Rain

    Magistral cinta de Shohei Imamura, en donde el cineasta, tomando como punto de partida las viscisitudes de una familia japonesa despues del bombardeo nuclear sobre Hiroshima, pasa revista a algunas de las aterradoras consecuencias que trajó consigo este crimen contra la humanidad para / con el pueblo japonés. El resultado es tan dramatico como espeluznante. De lo mejor del director.
