同胞
Year: 1976
Genre: Drama
Rating: (7)
Country: Japan
Runtime: 127 min.
Director: Yôji Yamada
Studio: Shochiku Co.
Cast: Chieko Baishô / Akira Terao / Masami Shimojô / Hideji Ôtaki / Hisashi Igawa / Chieko Misaki / Atom Shimojô / Tokuko Sugiyama / Masao Imafuku / Makoto Akatsuka / Yoshie Ichige / Mari Okamoto / Kazuhiko Kasai / Kenji Kimura / Akihiko Hanyû / Yoshiko Togawa / Katsuhiko Tamura / Kiyoshi Atsumi
Plot:
This appears to be a labor of love. Its about a village which is given the opportunity to put on a musical. They would have to pay the overhead and, being that they are farmers and always busy and not rich, question the wisdom and feasibility of such an idea. A spokesperson for the acting troupe Ms. Kono lays out the whole thing and they must decide. You get little slices of rural life in Japan far, at least in sentiment, from Tokyo. The best thing about this film is that it has heart. The acting is good, but it is really about the simple storyline of outing on a show. Films rarely get made with such simplistic plots these days. Enjoy this little slice of what city people call “the simple life”.
