Behind the curtain

I kind of like the vibe of this movie. It really has something going for it. The values that are on display here, even if some seem ridiculous today, they had to do things certain ways back then. And who is to say, if the way they were handling things back then was so wrong and the way we are doing things today is how it should be done. Although I do believe that there are still some of those values left in Japan (can't be certain of course).

While those values seem dated then, the acting is very fine. The pacing is slow, but if you have watched and loved movies by Kurosawa for example, that shouldn't be a problem. Though this cannot be compared to the Kurosawa movies, it still is a very strong movie.

Very good (still) cinematography, that was still holding up in the cinema I watched it (Berlin International Film Festival).
