Movie Info

The star of this documentary is a quintessential Imamura heroine: a hard-nosed, ruthless survivor, with a sense of loyalty and an earthy sense of humor. In this movie, she sits in a Tokyo bar, which she used to own, and tells the story of the various means she used to survive, beginning with the day the atom bomb fell. It is a history of compromises and hard deeds, though there are few outright betrayals. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

½

A fascinating, if subjective, look at post-war Japan viewed from its underbelly. Highly entertaining, but also a valuable piece of oral history, despite maybe some leading on the part of the director.
