Takamine shines in this 40s Naruse gem
6 June 2011 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

This charming film from Japan's most underrated director, Mikio Naruse, stars the very young and always beautiful Hideko Takamine and it's one of the director's best from that decade. The story is about a young bus conductress(Takamine) and the bus driver, who propose to their boss to provide tour guide commentary, in order to solve the bus company' s financial problems. I really liked this film, although its a bit too short (less than 1 hour) and not quite as profound as Naruse's late masterpieces. Also, it reminded me Hiroshi Shimizu's Arigato-San (1936), another great film with a similar mood. Unfortunately, almost all Naruse's films of the 40's are unknown in the West, thus the video quality of this movie is not so good...
