An Anthology Film
16 September 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Mikio Naruse's movie is an anthology of three comic stories, based on the writings of Yôjirô Ishizaka (1900-1986). Based on my brief Internet research, he was a leader in the "New Japan" literary movement, and very popular in the Post-War era.

In the first story, the Professor and some friends go to dig up some barrels of gasoline buried on the last day of the War. In the second, two old friends go to see a touring burlesque show, and their children quarrel over whose idea it was. Everyone sneaks off to the Professor to judge who is right. In the third, a young girl gets on the wrong haycart going home, and winds up in a strange village. Before she leaves the next morning, the household's mother has a cop come buy to issue a certificate that she has not been molested; he brings the Professor along to write the certificate.

It's a mild and amusing trio of stories, full of old-fashioned bits and pieces, with many actors who were or became better known. Toshiro Mifune appears in the last story, and he is well cast as a forbidding and silent doofus who falls in love with the young girl. Naruse does not invest the stories with much depth, but handles them as simple, charming fables of small-town life.
