Critic Reviews for Wife! Be Like a Rose!

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • Simple story is ingeniously told. Has honest human values and is completely without hokum.

    April 22, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The complicated, innovative style poses metaphysical questions to match the moral issue -- Naruse's highly angled compositions and oddly accented editing constantly undermine his characters' place in the world.

    April 22, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It has a distressing habit of stumbling over the threshold of each new scene; its fadeouts and dissolves are awkwardly amateur. Yet it has a certain sturdy honesty in the resolution of its problem and the performances are expert.

    June 24, 2006 | Full Review…
  • Wife! Be Like a Rose! has the distinction of being the first Japanese talkie to receive a commercial U.S. release.
