Depicting the period in and around World War II in Japan, 'Our Mother' depicts the madness and inhumanity of what happens when a right-wing militaristic government takes over and drives a nation to annihilation. The tragedy not only strikes a nation as a whole, but comes to the doorsteps of a woman who is left alone and desperate with everyone for whom she cares and knows victimized by conservatism, jingoism, nationalism and arrogance. There is no respite.Written by
This film tells a story and it is a dark one. But even amidst the fogs of war, militarism and conservatives ruining yet another country a mother's love is never-ending and never ceases to amaze.
The main actress does a really good job of not overplaying her hands.
