Fresh from an apprenticeship at Shochiku, Yuzo Kawashima gave the reborn Nikkatsu one of its first hits with this sharply observed story of the rekindling of an aging salaryman’s youthful love. Adapted from the book by respected postwar novelist Inoue Yasushi, it’s a look at an attempt to forge a connection late in life and an acknowledgment of the interrelation of generations. Starring Yamamura So as the man and Aratama Michiyo as his younger companion.
