Critics reviews

A definite pick-me up, after A DESCENDANT OF URASHIMA TARO set expectations low for occupation-period Naruse... I wouldn't exactly call BOTH YOU AND I a good film, but its desultory freedom of expression lifts it above much of Naruse's work from the relatively dry 1946-1950 period.

What are people saying?

  • Holyphool's rating of the film Both You and I

    A tender comedy about abuse and humiliation with two wonderful comic characters as blissfuly funny fathers who are systematically used by a powerful boss. Slapstick comedy allied with a serious undertow provides intensely human tragic comedy. The two men are seen walking endlessly down long dusty empty streets discussing life's interruptions with charming candor and a wonderful comic sense of their own vulnerability.
