An often fascinating work of storytelling.
April 17, 2002
It falls far short of major Imamura works like Vengeance Is Mine and The Ballad of Narayama.
March 4, 2002
Shohei Imamura is a talented director who has a fondness for anti-authoritarian characters who march to the beat of their own drummer.
April 20, 2001
At its best when focusing on its motley crew of characters.

Accomplished at expressing the complexities of human nature and emotions, Imamura has captured a sense of timelessness to the extent that we all but forget the time and place.

It does make [Imamura], in his mid-70's, arguably the youngest-hearted filmmaker in Japan.

[Imamura] leaves us with a sense of immersion in a Zeitgeist far from our own experience -- fascinating.

As lively, irreverent, and bizarrely cheerful as any of Imamura's previous low-life sagas.

Exquisitely acted and photographed with a true feeling for life in a village largely untouched by Allied bombing.

January 1, 2000
A well-intentioned and carefully crafted film.
January 1, 2000
Confirms for anyone who saw The Eel that here is one of world cinema's great humanists.
January 1, 2000
A strange farcical comedy results, that is often brilliant and at other times too messy to follow in all the cloudy trails it leads to.
