  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Lightning

    Intéressant comme d'ailleurs toute l'oeuvre du réalisateur...

  2. kit duckworth's rating of the film Lightning

    proof mikio naruse can do a happy movie without it being maudlin

  3. waywardwaters's rating of the film Lightning

    Human fallibility of internal family strife (over modern materialism) cluster in crescendo towards clashes of lightning, punctuating a girl’s determination for betterment from a bastardized upbringing. But suddenly, precipitating art (in classical piano motif) purges away emotions into laconic rays of light. Stupidly overlooked Naruse; stupendously high-class melodrama.

  4. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Lightning

    Of those I've seen, this seems to me to be Naruse's greatest film.

  5. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film Lightning

    Surprisingly upbeat turn at the end. Though it comes after "You had us without love, like a cat."
