Critics reviews

The most successful of Naruse’s extant silent works, a slow-building film that pays off with a powerful ending. Scripted by Ozu regular Tadao Ikeda from Naruse’s story, EVERY NIGHT DREAMS has an elegant narrative strategy that is not far removed from the complexity of Naruse’s better-known 50s period.
