A Story From Echigo
22 December 2017 | by manfromplanetxSee all my reviews

What an excellent dramatic story it is. Surprisingly little known, considering director Tadashi Imai was one of Japan's most prolific, interesting and controversial of 20th-century film directors. He infused staunch left-wing political views into almost all his films, succeeding in combining masterful art with topical social criticism,. Drawing on works from postwar modern authors this meticulously made literary adaptation is from a novel by Tsutomu Minakami. The story tells of Gonsuke , a native of Echigo who is working far from home at the sake brewery in Fushimi .He is called back to his hometown when his mother falls seriously ill, as she lays dying, Gonsuke on his way home, is side tracked. Tormented by inner demons, jealousy & lust he crosses paths with Oshin the beautiful wife of a fellow sake worker also from Echigo... The compelling crime drama highlights Imai's distinctive lyrical and humanistic style, which gives tremendous dimension and depth to the absorbing film. Incredibly beautiful location shooting and stunning cinematography outstanding performances, A Story From Echigo is exceptional Classic Japanese Cinema. Highly Recommended
