She Was Like a Wild Chrysanthemum
[ 1955 ][
Director: Kinoshita Keisuke 木下恵介
Plot:An old man, being rowed along a river, sees a field of daisies (or Wild Chrysanthemums, as they are described in the title, or starworts, as they are referred to in the subtitles), and thinks back to when he was fifteen. He recalls his time with, and away from, the girl cousin he grew up with and would have married, except the family and other pressures got in the way.
