I highly recommend this film.
At first I thought this film would be a depressing story to watch, but I was surprised that the film was actually very uplifting. Although it’s a sad story overall, it has a very powerful message if you watch it to the end, a message that will encourage you to move on even when life gets to its darkest moment.
This story is about problems of people in Tokyo, all sorts of problems. The leader of the family lose their job and was afraid to tell his family, the elder son join American army and go to war, the younger son wants to learn the piano but the father forbids him, the wife is depressed of trying to hold the family together. The film is so delicate and beautiful. It captures the feeling of each character and the whole depressive atmosphere of Tokyo very well. The pace is slow but it’s not boring because you can follow the story very easily and you can sympathize with each one of the characters. It doesn’t even have any Hollywood boring formula of sentimental film. This is a real work of art.
I’m not gonna spoil this movie. I just want to tell you to go watch this film and watch it to the end although you feel that it’s getting darker and darker. For me, this is not another good movie. This is a “great” movie because after I watch it, I feel that now I can go on with my life.
Meandering And Mildly Entertaining.
Viewed on DVD. Director Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s fling with the Shomin Geki (home drama) film genre. This is a contemporary, slice-of-life tale of a dysfunctional family (with a yet-to-be-discovered child prodigy) living next to commuter train tracks on the fringes of Tokyo. The sonata has two sets of stars: actors and Tokyo venues (the latter may be both familiar and novel for frequent visitors to and, perhaps, residents of the city). Direction and acting are workman like although Kurosawa has inserted numerous (sometimes subtle) messages and philosophical points of view (both harrowing and humorous). Set design is excellent. Cinematography (semi-wide screen, color) is very good (colors are especially vibrant). Camera work is sometimes reminiscent of “classical” Japanese films: set components can partially block scenes; camera can be static with action moving into or out of frame (like a stage play); and floor shots can cut off the heads of actors in the foreground. CGI enhanced piano playing is fun to watch. Dolby surround sound field is minimal but adequate. Subtitles are okay. Original score can be distracting or nondescript. Claude Debussy’s CLAIR DE BLOOM is milked (enjoyably) for all it is worth. A good casual watch. WILLIAM FLANIGAN, Ph.D
