Death and what it means is the theme of the haunting and sensuous Ballad ofNarayama, a Cannes Film Festival Grand prize winner from 1982 by ShoheiImamaura (Black Rain, The Eel, Dr. Akagi). Based on a novel by ShichiroFukazawa, this spellbinding film takes place in a rural mountainous area innorthern...
With beautiful photography and sensitive, elegant acting, this is perhapsthe best exploration of what it means to be human. As usual, ShoheiImamuradraws direct parallels between the basic drives & instincts (hunger,greed,lust, anger, envy) of people and other animals. I have friends who havewalked...
This is a film about a culture that has evolved to deal with foodscarcity. The people of the village have taken their choices to theextreme. Food is so hard to get (and keep) that the very old and veryyoung must leave. Babiy boys are left to die in the snow, baby girlsare raised only to be sold, and...
This is actually an extraordinarily beautiful film, if one has even theremotest understanding of Japanese culture around that time period. Theharshness of life in Japan made the sort of society in which peoplewent to "be with their loved-ones" and "be with the God of theMountain" at age 70 completel...
I was a little surprised by a few of the negative comments below sinceI don't consider this film to be at all slow or dull. Many foreign andAsian films (Tsai Ming-Liang, Apitchatpong Weerasethakul, HouHsiao-Hsien for example)are far more grueling and slow whereas thisfilm is loaded with narrative ev...
This is one of the most beautiful and moving motion pictures I have everseen. The extreme hardships faced by the people in this story are presentedfrankly and unsentimentally. The cinematography is absolutely exquisite,particularly the last 10-15 minutes. Although the film never gives in to orpander...
On numerous occasions Japanese filmmaker Shohei Imamura has confessedthat he is more interested in filming tales of despicable low livesthan narrating stories of hypocrite Japanese middle class.This isprecisely what makes his film special.It must be mentioned that anearlier version of this film was ...
It's not difficult to understand why Ballad of Narayama won the Palmed'Or in 1983. Beautifully filmed and probably just about having alittle something for everyone, I felt that this was without a doubt thebest of the Shohei Imamura movies shown today to commemorate hispassing last year, and on what ...
"Ballad of Narayama" is ultimately a film about survival.Set during the Meiji Period, the inhabitants of a tiny Japanese farmingvillage are forced to embrace extreme tactics to ensure that they stayalive.Male babies are instantly killed with hardly any remorse, while femalesare usually sold. Stealin...
One of the best films I have ever seen. Teaches you how to love yourparentsand kids. The cast and photography are amazing. A must seemovie.As for the previous comment from US on this film - isn't USA a countrywherethe elderly are sent to nursing homes to die, often stripped off theirdignity? So, go ...
Based of the old and unusual Japanese legend, Shohei Imamura's "TheBallade of Narayama" won the Golden Palm in 1983 Cannes Festival. Setin the 19th century in a remote mountain village in the north of thecountry, it tells of the custom according to which when a personreached 70 years old they were t...
When a person visits cinema to see a movie, he/she usually expects tosee filmed version of some story, whatever the film story shall be. So,let's go and see the Narajama story! Well, Legend of Narajama to me wasmuch more than that. It's expressiveness is above the term "story","film" etc. It is one ...
It is a shocker, which opens on a villager finding a dead newborn boyon his field… His only resentment is: why HIS field was chosen? Thefact of murdering a baby doesn't seem to concern anyone in thishunger-stricken small village, population of which must adhere torather radical if cruel set of ...
if you haven't watch Kinoshita's version (in 1958), go and see> it. It's really a jewel, more poetical and original, even more strange, than this one.You won't be disappointed....
Based on Shichiro Fukazawa's novel (which was already adapted byKeisuke Kinoshita in 1958), Shohei Imamura's The Ballad of Narayamafollows a rural 19th century village whose people barely survive ontheir rations each year and life is a constant struggle. Themagnificent aerial shots of winter landsca...
I have not, as of this writing, seen Kinoshita's 1958 film, but I'mable to remedy that since Criterion are releasing it on Blu-ray inFebruary. It'll be interesting to compare.Imamura's film is, as one might expect, quite explicit, not leastbecause of his naturalistic documentarian eye. This is way t...
This remake of "The Ballad of Narayama" has a very respectable ratingof 7.7 and lots of very positive reviews. However, I found the film tobe an endurance contest of unpleasantness. It also made its pointthrough TONS of what my daughter terms 'sledgehammer symbolism'--wherethe director tries so hard...
AnimEigo's June 2008 DVD release of The BALLAD of NARAYAMA has beeneagerly awaited for many years. Unfortunately, and for reasons that areas infuriating as they are inexplicable, the company which has releasedthe film (AnimEigo) has issued it in "full screen format" and not inAnamorphic Widescreen. ...
The film documents a feudal village in the distant past that lays belowthe mountain Narayama. By tradition, when people reach the age of 70,they are carried up the mountain by their oldest son and left their todie. Sumiko Sakamoto starts the film as a 69 year-old woman, and thefilm takes place over ...
This movie kind of reminded me of Walkabout, only for later in life asopposed to a coming-of-age story. True, the concerns and formalelements are different between the two movies, but movies have a nearobsessive relationship to animal and natural grotesqueries in the areathe characters inhabit to ma...
This is an odd movie in which scenes of natural predation arepretentiously interspersed between innocuous, routine events, servingas thematic signposts that attempt to define and legitimize thedirector's morbid fascination with senseless brutality. The disheveled,unkempt, often filthy characters nev...
Bad? How we can give an opinion about a Japanese film without knowingtheir cultural background? As I already said in my opinions about filmsout of the US, there is a fundamental lack of history about nations,languages, women and man. How is this possible? Such a lack ? I don'tknown, but I think the ...
There are many glorious, wonderful movies celebrating the courage,honor and spirit of the Japanese peasant in the face of overwhelmingadversity. This is not one of them. Where to begin. Well, at thebeginning, where we are treated to the bloated body of a dead child,left by its parents to rot in a ri...
Rating movies has always been a highly subjective procedure. I mean, "TheBallad of Narayama" would get only a *1/2 rating from me for being agrueling, extremely boring, completely unengaging experience, but thereareundoubtedly many people that would consider this a masterpiece. Judge foryourself. It...

bad

This is a creepy, muddled, sadistic film. Just the idea of you needing tohitch your parent when he/she turns 70 to some god forsaken mountain wherecrows come and eat you while you wither up and die. Now that's just thesummary. There is a ton of pointless sex, and the plot never is sturdy. Ittends to...
