  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Older Brother, Younger Sister

    Sans verser dans un pessimisme glacial ou dans l'amertume grinçante, force est de reconnaître que le cinéaste dresse un constat plutôt négatif de la sphère familiale et des échanges entre les individus en général, qui semblent tous prisonniers de leurs affects et de leurs représentations, incapables de partager avec autrui ou de ressentir l'autre dans sa profonde différence, sa précieuse intégrité.

  2. Gondo's rating of the film Older Brother, Younger Sister

    The father in this film always just seemed like an absent character. When we see him he is either drinking, sleeping or walking aimlessly around town. And when he for once is engaged in a conversation he is just feels passive. It seems like the riff between the reality of his daughters situation and his ideals of family that he grew into/and up in was just to much for him and..well..broke him in a way.

  3. Adam Suraf's rating of the film Older Brother, Younger Sister

    Following "Rashomon" and "Ugetsu", Mori and Kyo are paired again, this time for Mikio Naruse, directing a sensitive drama about a close family torn apart by old fashioned ideas, and jealousy, when the middle sister comes home single, pregnant, and disgraced. Well acted all around; another emotionally poignant beauty from Naruse's greatest period.
