It's a carefully composed, elegant, sometimes prescient work, a small-scale love story set against a background of tumultuous social and political change.
It's like looking for footprints, tracking the master this apprentice was to become.
It's a 'little people' comedy in the Frank Capra vein
A curious mixture of the striking and the woeful
microcosm of the Japanese post-war experience
The filmmaker at his maudlin worst.
It went on too long and featured characters who I could not care about whatsoever despite the film's attempts to get me to feel sorry for them. The usage and depiction of post-war Japan is interesting, not interesting enough that it makes me want to like or rewatch this campy, melodramatic film. The ending is one that made me raise my eyebrow and then sigh in relief because I can go onto watching Kurosawa's next film--this first with Mifune--Drunken Angel.
Two young lovers go wandering around town on one wonderful Sunday, but the movie is more serious as it sounds as they think about their futures. I really enjoyed this movie.
a charming and severely underrated kurosawa film. a delightful romance, an easy atmosphere, and the symphony scene at the end was majestic. a bit slow mooving at points, but only because the film seeks to be genuine, and in my mind kurosawa accomplishes his purposes.
