Nijushi no hitomi

Keisuke Kinoshita Japan, 1954

Javier Toloza's rating of the film Twenty-four Eyes

How to tell a story like this one, full of strong sentiments and powerful political implications, without falling in an apology of nationalism or guilty feelings for what happened? I got the answer watching this film: telling it from the point of view of the simple people and their everyday life, ordinary people whose only wish is to live enjoying peace and happiness... My mother would love watching this film!
