  1. Holyphool's rating of the film The Whole Family Works

    A sublimely dark chamber piece of a large family, where the father is confronted with filial piety, as his four eldest sons make to leave the family, and not support their parents. Naruse shoots beautiful scenes of family life impressionistically, with an evocative film score as well as the use of street sounds and nature. The final denouement is the boys performing somersaults of joy upstairs of their parents.
