Ikari no machi

Mikio Naruse Japan, 1950

Holyphool's rating of the film The Angry Street

A serene touching tale of two students who fleece money from lonely rich dance hall girls looking for love almost resembles a happy American comedy with its western venues and two main characters who find themselves increasingly in bewildering emotional situations: one lies to his increasingly disturbed family and pursues a life of crime while the other turns and achieves redemption from his friend's sister.
