30 hand picked films. A new one every day
Wonderful. When I first discovered Japanese cinema I realised it was something I'd been searching for my whole movie-going life. The look, the feeling, the understated pathos. This film is the reason why I adore Japanese cinema so.
hip, hip, hurra
A very touching piece about the obligations and bonds in family.
Einfühlsame Schilderung des ständig wiederkehrenden schmerzhaften Verlustes im Leben.
A tratti si dilunga troppo, ho trovato la visione un po'pesante nonostante i toni non lo siano affatto.
I 20 minuti finali sono realmente struggenti e Nakadai è straordinario.
Not only one of Nakadai's best perforamnces in his career, but also one of Nakadai's own favourites, with Kobayashi claiming the man told him he saw the film at least 50 times!
