20110508 The mediocre work of kyxq master Akira Kurosawa. Produced by the Four Horsemen of the New Wave in Japan. The perspective is aimed at the marginal and poor people in the garbage dump, including the mentally handicapped, lazy, alcoholic, disabled, beggar, destitute, thief, etc. The plot is scattered and has no main line, and the mood is pessimistic. cheating wife husband paragraph). Without three boats, it was really frustrating. 3 stars weak

20180709le revisited, the color version of the bottom layer. Akira Kurosawa overestimated the audience of that era, so realistic, so tragic, so cruel, the box office fiasco was to be expected.

However, despite the poor reputation at the time, the value of the film cannot be denied, especially the director's great compassion, being born as a human being is really a complicated thing... a small market without seasons, only a desolate autumn is left. When a tree dies, it is no longer a tree. What about the man?

Unspeakable complex and depressed mood, probably this is the world we have to face.

The color and storytelling skills are very good. The first color film of Akira Kurosawa, who could have chosen a safe samurai movie or his special detective movie, but continues to challenge realism, fans can only express admiration for this. Of course, the final result is also of a standard. A master is still a master. 4 stars
