  • joey Noodles's rating of the film Sincere Heart

    Kobayashi's second feature is, once again, heavily influenced by his mentor Kinoshita (who wrote the screenplay) and it has some interesting things to say about class, but at times the sentimentality was too strong and overplayed, it had some very sad and emotionally powerful parts but some of the time this lacked as well. Well acted and the writing was ok, but not Kobayashi's finest hour. 3.5/5
