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.

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

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

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

Confirms for anyone who saw The Eel that here is one of world cinema's great humanists.
January 1, 2000
Imamura allows himself poetic touches, sparingly.

An often fascinating work of storytelling.

It falls far short of major Imamura works like Vengeance Is Mine and The Ballad of Narayama.
