Kurosawa is to Ford and Mizoguchi is to Capra. One of the most beautifully photographed Japanese masterpieces with a message to boot.

"Country : Japan Genre : Drama 11/4/14 10/10 One of the best and the most powerful films I've ever seen, stunning cinematography, and the story is extremely sad but the film is so profound that like a blessing. "

My movie year 2014 (372 movies items)

"21.2. (Teatteri) Kuten sanottua, palautti jälleen intoni katsella elokuvia. Ensimmäisen Kenji Mizoguchilta näkemäni leffan perusteella ohjaaja osaa tehdä vangitsevaa, tunteita vaivihkaa mutta silti railakkaasti manipuloivaa elokuvaa, jonka hahmoista tämä osaa ottaa irti kaiken. Eräinä teemoina mieleen tulevat uhrautuminen, muutoksen mahdollisuus, ihmisenä pysyminen. Lyhyet, off-screeninä käyvät kidutuskohtaukset tuntuvat pahemmilta kuin mitkään Hostellin mässäilyt."
