One of the Best Samurai Films
I give this an 8 because it is a small film, one that limits itself to a very small scope in time and space. Its themes, however, are timeless. Virtue and its application to daily life is at the core of this film, and the samurai genre is only a vehicle. Nevertheless, the samurai fighting is beautifully and clearly depicted, and the character of the ronin protagonist is both unusual and admirable.
Samurai films set at the end of the shogunate usually depict the conflict between a warrior ethos and a settled society, and this film is no exception. Our hero, a ronin (samurai without a settled position or master) traveling with his wife, is trapped by weather at a country inn. His interactions with his fellow travelers, all commoners, and the citizens of the rural area where the inn is located, reveal his sterling character. His interactions with the local daimyo (feudal territorial lord) and his retainers show his brilliance as a swordsman and his utter decency as a human being.
If you are a fan of samurai films you will enjoy this one. If you are a fan of good film making, you will love this film.
A poetic story of love and kindness.
Created as a tribute to the master Kurosawa, this film falls into the well-known samurai/ronin genre, but seeks to create a story with a more enjoyable narrative that pleases a humanisno as palpable as it is admirable. Simplicity combined with honest storytelling results in a loving narrative thread that offers a fresh perspective on a caring and loving warrior. After the Rain is a simple film in the sense that it doesn’t try to be more than it pretends to be. It is a story that encapsulates the modesty of a simple life governed by the honor and love of a truly good man. Even in the face of the difficulties and challenges of everyday life, even in the face of moral dilemmas and the twisted compass of good and law, this character stands out as someone who does not follow the instinct of the animal hunter, but of the protective family guardian.
The fantastic direction works as an excellent boost to the overall quality of the film, offering a work that calms the heart and fills us with a bit of hope thanks to a style that is as cinematic as it is poetic. Like a novel in our hands, but now made for our eyes. After the Rain is a tribute not only to one of the greatest in history, but to an entire genre. Romance? Samurai? Maybe both, maybe neither, after all the only thing left after the rain is the head held high and the heart beating.
