Old Sweet Song

Mukashi no uta

Directed by Tamizo Ishida
Japan, 1939
Drama, History


A story of two Osaka families dramatises the rise of the merchant class and the decline of the former samurai. Again, though less prescriptively, Ishida adheres to the principle of avoiding repeated shots, and again there is a feminine focus to the film’s depiction of history.
