Great stuff, 18 March 2003
Author: rufasff from Los Angeles Ca

Another strong postwar melodrama of hard, hard times in Japan. This one, however, has the heartbreak undercut with a certain hopefulness and humor. A little uneven at times, and the character who starts out as the storyteller falls into the background. Still, if you get a chance to see this(it's not on video or DVD) jump at it. Nine out of ten.
