intensely moving
4 January 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

intensely moving story about a woman trapped between her stoic/moral beliefs, and the changing times brought about by the end of WW2. Similar themes discussed in Ozu's films 'floating weeds' + 'end of summer', but with a more direct and stark style.

Fascinating look at how upper middle class in Japan react to war and its aftermath, as well as to adultery and suicide.

As in Ridley Scott's 'Gladiator', the image of tall grass serves to express the calm fertility of nature with a dream-like quality, in contrast to the malignant hustle and bustle of the city.

An excellent drama, despite the less than perfect quality of the print (even though it is a new print)
