A very good movie

Back in the 90’s, I had the pleasure to discover Akira Kurosawa’s movies and I became overnight a huge fan of his work. Of all his movies I have seen so far, this must be the most underrated coming from this director but it is definitely one of the best he has made, at least, as far as I’m concerned. Indeed, I think it is an amazing movie dealing with the slums in Japan and, even though it m... read more

"23.3. (DVD/Kirjasto) Köyhän ainut huvitus on vilkas mielikuvitus.
