सारांश

Masaki Kobayashi’s mammoth humanist drama is one of the most staggering achievements of Japanese cinema. A raw indictment of its nation’s wartime mentality as well as a personal existential tragedy, Kobayashi’s riveting, gorgeously filmed epic is novelistic cinema at its best.

The Human Condition निर्देशक Masaki Kobayashi
I prefer skewed visions [of war] like Hell in the Pacific (1968) or Joyeux Noël (2005), where the human scale is emphasized. And that’s the core of The Human Condition: our nature and responsibility to each other… For me, there are too many reasons for drawing a love letter to this movie, but probably the most important one is because I believe watching it can lead us to make better people of ourselves. At least it will make you feel like a better person for nine hours.

Concluding as the installment began with the twilight image of Kaji instinctively heading south to return home to his beloved Michiko, Kobayashi creates a sobering allegory for a tainted national soul in the indelible image of noble determination and blind delusion.

Ultimately, perhaps, the film suffers from its sheer magnitude, from the almost unrelieved somberness of its prevailing mood. Content, driven by the director’s uncompromising seriousness, bursts the bounds of form; eased of the burden of his personal memories, Kobayashi would attain a finer balance of the two in Harakiri and Samurai Rebellion. But The Human Condition stands as an achievement of extraordinary power and emotional resonance.
