A Great Storytelling
I will not compare with the book. The film is really a historical work and subtly spells out the factors of the largest Japanese immigration from Brazil. But not only does this open up a discussion for just how cruel information asymmetry is and how it can put agents involved in social or economic relations in combatant situations. One can also identify something that was and perhaps even today is very common among immigrants, the relationship between the veteran immigrant and the newcomer, the pioneer immigrants opened orders of "invitation letter" that was required by the Brazilian government in order to acquire cheap labor and take advantage of their own countrymen.
- The narrative is brief, without many details, but it has many historical contexts that obliges the viewer to seek historical context for greater understanding.
- Story told in parallel with the events of the war in which Japan was involved.
- A small part of the history of one of the colonies that came to Brazil to seek a better life at that time.
- The division of acts is well developed.
- Although the movie is Brazilian, only the actors who actually represented the Brazilians - have their nationality, the rest are all Japanese, giving an air of realism and little artificiality.
- The ending is little explored.
- Death scenes were not explicit.
