      Japanese Folk Variations After World War II

      "Trolley Mania" received such a flood of negative reviews that it almost killed Akira Kurosawa's film "Am I going to make a samurai movie that will kill me all my life until I die?" . Can you make a movie that bravely uncovers the scars of the Japanese people and reflects the current social situation, just to be the honest child in the emperor's new clothes, even if he dies in the end, it should be valuable and have no regrets, right? So he made this film. Akira Kurosawa's film is really...

      Rescue and self-help

      Chaotic, blind life, no trajectory to follow, everything is irregular. Because human nature itself is blind and irregular, the existence of each special individual is without precedent. Looking at the people in "A Small Market Without Seasons", it seems that they are looking at all living beings. Today, they don't know what will happen tomorrow, so they have to go on according to the current situation. Today's decision may be a temporary emotional impulse, or it may be based on...

      Akira Kurosawa and Color

      Akira Kurosawa's first color film. As expected of a person who once wanted to be a painter, his control of color is also very good. It's just that he focuses on marginal characters, the theme deviates from the taste of mainstream audiences, and he is destined to suffer a fiasco at the box office.

      Some colors that impress:

      1. Tram-crazy boy: As a mentally retarded, he may be the only happy person in the film, driving away every day in the tram of his imagination. His...

      CC Collection No. 465, produced in Japan in 1970, Akira Kurosawa's first color film at the age of 60. Another version of "Lower", there is no "Redbeard" to save everything, only the amusement of the tram idiot. The unreasonable shrew, the perverted uncle, the silent man, the difference between a stone house and a wooden house, the widower who misses his wife and daughter, the thief who surrendered himself, the alcoholic brother who changed his wife.

      The poor people's life, the colors are quite bright and colorful, and the contrast between the life in the film is huge. The perspective is fairly peaceful, and I can't read any high-level criticism. I especially like the idiots on the tram and interspersed with footnotes in the film. I especially like the detached old craftsman, the homeless father and son who designed a house in their imagination with their son, and the man who refused to speak after his wife cheated and looked dead. , these...

    Evaluation action

    In this film, Wind Man's use of color is extremely extravagant and bold, and he renders a dilapidated and dirty squatter house like a dream. Originally, the original novel was a realistic work with a strong realism style, but under the design of Wind Man, the film is as publicized as an impressionist painting. Every scene in the film, every actor's clothing, every character's makeup, and every lighting effect can be seen as part of...
