MOTHER (1952) in 35mm

[OKAASAN] [おかあさん]
This haha-mono ("mother picture") is distinctive for its wry humor, toughness and poignancy. A loving teenage daughter (Kyoko Kagawa) narrates the story of the struggles of her mother (Kinuyo Tanaka) to keep the family laundry business going after the war and great personal loss. Japanese film historian Tadao Sato groups this film with Mizoguchi's LIFE OF OHARU and Kurosawa's IKIRU, all from 1952, as the beginning of "the second golden age of Japanese cinema." DIR Mikio Naruse; SCR Yoko Mizuki; PROD Ichiro Nagashima. Japan, 1952, b&w, 98 min. NOT RATED
