Onna ga kaidan wo agaru toki

Mikio Naruse Japan, 1960

Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film When a Woman Ascends the Stairs

My first Naruse and hasn't been topped yet. A study on female independence in a male predominant society where the superficial is most valued. A film that teaches to us keep going when dealt with bad circumstances.
