Summary
  • This affectionate paean to young love is also a frank examination by Kurosawa of the harsh realities of postwar Japan. During a Sunday trip into war-ravaged Tokyo, Yuzo and Masako, with only thirty-five yen to spend, look for work and lodging, as well as affordable entertainments to pass the time. Reminiscent of Frank Capra's social-realist comedies, and echoing contemporaneous Italian neorealism, One Wonder Sunday touchingly offers a sliver of hope in dark times
  • Postwar Kirosawa: Akira Kurosawa came into his own as a filmmaker directly following World War II, delving into the state of his devastated nation with a series of pensive, topical dramas. Amid Japan's economic collapse and U.S. occupation, Kurosawa managed to find humor and redemption alongside despair and anxiety. In these five early films, which range from political epic to Capraesque whimsy to courtroom potboiler, Kurosawa revealed the artistic range and social acuity that would mark his career and make him the most popular Japanese director in the world
