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

(OK) Kurosawa not just invented a world similar to the real poor one, but invented a style not known before in his cinema, the colour (also first time for him) helped to making it more fantastic, as in the secuences of the boy and the imaginary train or the faher and his dying son...

"Various tales in the lives of Tokyo slum dwellers, including a mentally deficient young man obsessed with driving his own commuter trolley. This was Akira Kurosawa's first colour movie, and is notable for how well he transitioned. After the success of "Red Beard", it took Kurosawa 5 years before this movie appeared.
