A Good Film About Films
23 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a film about the film industry in Japan in the early 30's. Specifically, it is about Koharu (the pretty, fresh faced Narimi Arimori), a candy seller at a movie theater who is discovered by director Ogura, to be an actress in a film. She doesn't do well at all. and the film is basically about what happens to her. The film is sometimes uneven, but it has heart. By far the best part of this film is Ms. Arimori, she is very believable as the novice actress. I am not sure how much of a history lesson this is, but it has comic moments, as well as drama. The film Koharu ends up working on is "Floating Weeds", coincidently (I don't believe its a coincidence) the name of a film by the great Ozu. This film is entertaining but not great. Its worth a look, especially if you have an interest in how films, even so long ago, were made.
