  • FISCHER's rating of the film The Outcast

    Début du 20e siècle, le dénommé Segawa appartient à la caste des "burakumin", frappés d'exclusion par l'ensemble de la société. Elevé par son oncle et sa tante, il a caché ses origines et promis de ne jamais les révéler à quiconque, et est devenu instituteur. Sa rencontre avec Inoko, qui combat cette forme de racisme, le pousse à se remettre lentement en question ..... EXCELLENT ! www.cinefiches.com

  • Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film The Outcast

    Watched 35 mm projection at nsw art gallery: The movie serves as a en educational film about the 'burakumin' caste discrimination which i had no idea of and couldnt full comprehend but apparently its still going on. But its too slow,overly sentimental and performances are over the top.
