  1. Communicants's rating of the film Sudden Rain

    If I had to explain what I like in a movie using only one example, this would be it. A film about nothing other than being.

  2. Leo Wong's rating of the film Sudden Rain

    Enjoyed this unexpectedly (to me) light comedy.

  3. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Sudden Rain

    Kagawa Kyoko has a scene at start of film, complaining to Hara Setsuko about the awfulness of her 3 day-old married life - then is never seen again. Hara's been married for years and they can barely stand each other. Hubby's urban malady is giving him ulcers, things are taking a downward turn at work. This is the basis of Naruse's "comedy." For me Hara is at her most appealing when she's quietly embittered.

  4. Jake Savage's rating of the film Sudden Rain

    Naruse's best comedic effort. Not as biting as he can be, but a sweet comedy in the screwball mold. Very accessible, highly recommended.
