In a small village in a remote valley everyone who reaches the age of 70 is banished to the top of Mt. Narayama to die so as not to be a burden on the village and bring disgrace upon their family. Old Orin is 69 and despite being in good health in the coming winter it will be her turn to leave. But first there are things to do and a score or two to settle.

" The Story is that once a person reaches the age of 70 he or she must go to a mountain to die, its tradition. So i thought will meet the characters and then feel sorry at the end. I was very wrong, nothing was predictable and i was emotionally drained before it got to the middle. THen it just finished me. "

"15.5. Shohei Imamuran tulkinta moneen kertaan filmatusta aiheesta on mielenkiintoinen. Esimerkiksi Keisuke Kinoshitan versio keskittyy matkaan vuorelle, mutta Imamuran elokuvassa matkaprosessia on vasta lopussa. Sitä ennen käsitellään miehelle tyypillisesti yhteiskunnan ulkopuolella elävien häijyjä tapoja, uskomuksia ja selviytymistaistelua tavalla, joka tekee luonnottomasta luonnollista. Ilahduttavasti elokuva vain parantaa loppua kohden."
