Samenvatting

Reiko heeft een ongelukkig huwelijk met een man die 23 jaar ouder is dan zij. Ze is bevriend met Mayumi, een beeldschone weduwe. Reiko ontmoet de rivaal van haar man, een jonge en aantrekkelijke zakenman en valt voor hem. Ondertussen krijgt Mayumi een relatie met Shimotsuma, een vriend van haar man.

Onze opvatting

De emotionele conclusie van Kawashima’s melodrama toont twee vrouwen die moeite hebben om hun geliefden te accepteren en van sociale verwachtingen te ontsnappen. Kan een weduwe en moeder van twee kinderen een nieuwe man liefhebben? Zal een vrouw zich bevrijden van haar slechte huwelijk?

  • Jason's rating of the film Hungry Soul, Part II

    Proceeding through this remarkable MUBI Kawashima restrospective, I have more often thought of directors like Fritz Lang or even John Huston than I have Ozu or Naruse. The sequel to HUNGRY SOULS caused me the think of von Sternberg. A flash of poetic inspiration: a dialectic opposing polished marble & fire. Note the actresses: profoundly destabilizing emotional intensity filtered through a stoic economy of affect.

  • Eliane Silva's rating of the film Hungry Soul, Part II

    Kawashima transita bem pela diversidade de gêneros cinematográficos. Este filme nos deixa pensando como nos sujeitamos às convenções sociais. Tachibana amava com força, mas se deixou levar por hábitos antigos que o consumiram. Mayumi é uma mulher exemplar que aprende a amar e ser amada, mas não suporta o peso da liberdade. Reko ama e é amada, mas apenas aceita mudar de dominador e por isso vai amargar a decepção.

  • Pok's rating of the film Hungry Soul, Part II

    Es grotesco ver cómo los hombres tratan a las mujeres como posesiones, a veces incluso con la mejor de las intenciones. Lo peor es que, en ocasiones, incluso ellas mismas asumen ese papel al negarse la felicidad por la cual sus almas sienten hambre o incluso se autodestruyen con tal de seguir perteneciendo a un hombre. El final nos da un atisbo de falsa esperanza, lo cual hace peor el sentido de tragedia ineludible.

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Hungry Soul, Part II

    Although this sequel begins with a dose of proceduralism, it gradually develops into an astute study on how powerful a person's habitus can be whether being shaped by family values, patriarchal conjugal roles or fatalistic morals about love and relationships. As the two women seem to progressively assume emancipation and reap its rewards, their conformist trajectories lead to a startlingly tragic and poignant climax.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Hungry Soul, Part II

    Love Movie, split between two concurrent romances while the camera is in love with Tokyo Tower. Anyone who says that they don't like melodrama probably hasn't seen this.

  • Christopher DeSanntis's rating of the film Hungry Soul, Part II

    Hungry Soul has important themes delivered very slowly and melodramatically. They probably could've cut both movies to make one, though perhaps that'd lose the constant feeling of imprisonment the two female characters experience that Kawashima was likely going for. I appreciate this movie but only like it for the scenery and some of the neat shots. However, there are a lot of people I know who would've loved it.

  • Kevin's rating of the film Hungry Soul, Part II

    Melodrama is so much fun. Considering the horror the US went thru in the 50s gray suit days, it feels like Japan avoided the milieu with films like this one, sorry I could not write about part 1. Old world vs. new world, with the old winning world winning in the end. Part 2 brings it home though in the most heart pulling way.

  • André Capuano's rating of the film Hungry Soul, Part II

    Lindo filme! Trilha sonora e fotografia extremamente bonitas. O filme gera tensão pelas diferentes impossibilidades de afirmação do amor. As atuações são intensas e sutis. O massacre das mulheres feito por uma sociedade machista é mostrado no íntimo, com muita sensibilidade e, por isso, gerando uma reflexão completa que envolve razão e emoção.
