Nijushi no hitomi

Keisuke Kinoshita Japan, 1954

DrFirestone's rating of the film Twenty-four Eyes

It's a simple yet powerful story, very emotional, filled with nostalgy and sadness. Set in difficult and turbulent time for Japan explains the conflict between strive for a peaceful, quiet life and loyalty to the state. I'm surprised how this film stays relevant to this day. Masterfully directed, some shots are absolutely beautiful. I also enjoyed the traditional songs in this film. Excellent!
