    I have a different reaction to prior comments. While, by far, not Kurosawa's or Hara's best work, the piece carries strong meaning. It was much less about the anti-fascist movement that was quashed in the lead up to Japan attacking American and British interests in the Pacific: it's a story about personal redemption, and not, Yukie's redemption, albeit we do witness her growth and maturing in her character arc.

    Instead, the first half of the film - rough as it is - is largely setup for the second half. Viewers need to understand who Yukie and Noge are, what he believes, and why he pays such a high price - spoiler - to understand why Yukie is willing to go to the lengths she goes. And notice, we never have a scene of her saying spoiler I like to think the latter.

    Also known as 'No Regrets for Our Youth'.

    Edit: I just got done with this. Made it about eighty minutes in, and had to shut it off. This was my 28th Kurosawa film, and easily the dullest one so far. Worth watching only as a list-completer.

    I love Kurosawa,but this film was just terrible. No insight into politics or social insight, just an excessive melodrama that ran 20 minutes too long. 7 years 2 months ago
