Nijushi no hitomi

Keisuke Kinoshita Japan, 1954

UnbrandedFilms's rating of the film Twenty-four Eyes

Although the character of the Teacher is well developed and her free minded spirit sets an unbiased contrast to the scarring experience of the war, the length of the film works against the story. Just as excessive sentimentalism, too many tears and a lemme-slash-my-wrists music do.
