The Idiot (1951) Poster


Chieko Higashiyama: Satoko, Ayako's mother


  • Satoko, Ayako's mother : I have my reasons.

  • Satoko, Ayako's mother : I really misjudged him. Why give him the ranch if he's going to spend his money on that hussy? And what bother's me that most is how you did it. Wasn't there a more straightforward way? Why bring that Karube in as an agent? And you, acting so secretively, as if you were the guilty one! And Kameda could have at least stopped by to thank you. Perhaps he's an idiot after all.

  • Satoko, Ayako's mother : Have you heard any more gossip about our idiot?

  • Satoko, Ayako's mother : [to Kameda about Ayako]  I wonder how she feels about you. She has more disdain for you than praise. She calls you an invalid and an idiot. But don't be offended. She really takes after me - willful with a touch of craziness. If she likes someone, she'll call him names and teases him.

  • Satoko, Ayako's mother : Did anything happen that might make a mother worry?

    Kinji Kameda : I don't think so.

    Satoko, Ayako's mother : Then you can meet again.

  • Satoko, Ayako's mother : We have no choice but to let her follow her heart.
