    I remember my first Imamura (and on a big screen !). As always, he plays in his comfort zone, in between fiction and documentary. Japan is arguably always the main character in his movies. Here the history of a country mixes on a more personal level with vivid memories of a woman. It is hard to tell what has been written, what is played, but it does not matter: nothing is fake.

    Does anyone know where this can be found? I've (okay, my friend has) scoured the internet, and I can't seem to find it anywhere. I want to see this damn film! Savvy
