One Wonderful Sunday

Subarashiki nichiyobi

directed by Akira Kurosawa
Japan, 1947


This affectionate paean to young love is also a frank examination by Akira Kurosawa of the harsh realities of postwar Japan. During a Sunday trip into war-ravaged Tokyo, Yuzo and Masako look for work and lodging, as well as affordable entertainments to pass the time.
