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 (379 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."

"Circa 1000, the Heian Era. The Heian Era was considered the peak of Japanese classical civilization and the Japanese Imperial Court. This movie depicts the early development of the land owning class which would become Samurai military class and the Daimyo noble class. "
