Makes some keen observations about the changing role of the Japanese women in the post-war society, as seen through the eyes of a sympathetic male.
Sound of the Mountain is reportedly director Mikio Naruse's favorite among his pictures and, to a point, it is easy to see why.
setsuko hara suffers magnificently for 90 minutes. quite risque subject matter for 1956. lovely soundtrack and beautiful shots, especially the ending, all the more heartbreaking for what's left unsaid. naruse was every bit the master of family drama that ozu was, and as sympathetic with his female characters as mizoguchi. it's a pity he's still so little known in the west and his films largely unavailable on dvd
