It is best to begin a discussion of Mikio Naruse's Yearning by focusing on its concluding image.

Audience Reviews for Midareru

this is the finest melodrama i have ever seen. in a side note: i don't know why so many synopses refer to reiko's husband as a suicide when he was clearly killed in the war. anyway, the height of naruse and takemine's work, along with 'floating clouds'
