An anti-war film whih takes different approach to the war itself. Masumura depicts the nitty-gritty and scary reality in army hospitals during Sino-Japan war.
Ayako Wakao is a revelation as Nurse Sakura Nishi, a young woman in possession of enormous humanity, who ministers to the war wounded in the most intimate of ways and falls deeply in love with Dr. Okabe (Shinsuke Ashida), a disconnected surgeon whose only escape from his blood-soaked work is a nightly armful of morphine.
In one of the most heart-wrenching sequences, Nurse Nishi takes pity on Pvt. Orihara who has lost both of his arms. After pleading with the young nurse to relieve him of his sexual frustration, she takes him to a hotel where he expresses his passion but the evening proves too much for him to handle.
The movie is very brutal - it will be hard to get from your mind the images of piles of amputated limbs and the despair of soldiers who know they are on a virtual suicide mission in a war they don't understand.
I can not praise this shattering achievement highly enough. It is a masterpiece of humanity.
finally a modern Indian film which sadness doesn't rely on camera circling the characters, repetitive cut to heigtened the sentiments, and also restrained cries. I can relate with the religion clash turmoil situation, because it often happens here in my country too. Aparna Sen is deftly enough not treat the melodrama with cheap sentiment.
one of the most original story ever to grace in Hollywood. Even better and bitterer than The Truman Show.
Brooks as a guy who died suddenly and have to go to Judgment City to get judged whether he's appropriate or not going back to earth again. But he must overcome his fear by being judged and prosecutor. Well, he has his defender and the act of defending his life is creatively by playing some scenes from his past lives. It's funny, touching, sad, and sometimes heartbreaking. A rarity from Hollywood, if only Brooks is allowed to make more movies.
Dino Risi is now officially a director whose films I'd like to dig more. A marvelous blend between the poverty which u often can see in Neo-Realism movie and comedy like mmm could I say warm and touching a la Italian movie (I don't know but they really have different sort kind of comedy).
A romantic comedy about a couple living with their idealistic and love through the misery of everyday lives of working class Italian. Now I can see who is Roberto Benigni's most important figure in Italian cinema, especially when he made La Vita e Bella.
one of the most memorable and amongst my favorite film-noir. It must be true when Godard said that Jules Dassin's Hollywood films are better than his French ones. It's gripping, especially the truck driving scene is very intense.
Written by A.I. Bezzerides based on his novel too, the movie tells a story about how hard it is living in the farmer's market, with the competition, blackmail, murder just as hard as typical film-noir story.
The casts are not the most famous like you will not know if you're not a die-hard Golden Hollywood era movie, but it's sooo worth watching. Many great lines, and superb performance especially from Valentina Cortese whose charm was mimicked by Isabella Rossellini in Blue Velvet.
Aren't Women Wonderful?
