Narayama-bushi kô

Shôhei Imamura Japonia, 1983

Blue K, Custodian of the Cinema's rating of the film The Ballad of Narayama

I agree with Rudiger. This film pretty much sucks. How in the world did this win the Palm d'Or? The Kinoshita film is much superior. The same custom is also dealt in a far superior fashion by Kim Ki-young's "Goryeojang."
