    A true gem of cinema. Masterful actings. Concrete story with great depth that leaves plenty of room for analysis and discussions. 9 years 4 months ago

    I love Japanese cinema and I found the movie to be interesting, but unfortunatly overrated, especially compared to Kurosawa pictures from the same period. It looks pretty and the acting is good, but the plot unfolds too slowly and sprawls in too many directions, so it lost my interest after some time. However, the ending is very strong and I recommend watching it for the ending alone, but the first hour kind of dragged a bit in my opinion. 8 years ago

    I was surprised by how good this movies was. I didn't expect much when I started watching it, but it was really well put together. I quickly forgot about the fact that it was 60 years old and in black/white. I can definitely recommend it! 6 years 9 months ago
