Morning for the Osone Family
[ 1946 ][
Director: Kinoshita Keisuke 木下恵介
Plot:Kinoshita's first film after the end of World War II is a wrenching, superbly wrought tale about a liberal-minded Japanese family torn apart by war and imperialist politics. Morning for the Osone Family is both palpably bitter about the nation's fresh wartime wounds and inspiringly hopeful about a democratic tomorrow.
