"A Japanese veteran, driven partially mad from the war, travels to the snowy island of Kameda where he soon enters a love triangle with his best friend and a disgraced woman. A rather dull movie which goes way too long for my liking. The movie was a Japanese telling of a story by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. This worried me, as the last movie I saw of Kurosawa's that was based on a Russian novel was difficult to watch (The Lower Depths). Thankfully the presence of Toshiro Mifune made it bearable to watch"

"21.3. 2011 This is very possibly one of the best film adaptations of famous classic novels. The main character of this complex story is a simple and kind man, who travels to Hokkaido after being released from an asylum. He meets two different kind of women and his truthful nature makes impression on both of them. Many other people downplay and make fun of him, but because of his genuine integrity he is still the most admirable character of the story. Unfortunately, getting used to a shallow and"
