1937 Japanese Drama

Oldie Movie DVD Digitally Mastered from Archival Prints

 

人情紙風船

"Humanity & Paper Balloons"

Selected as the 4th best film in Japanese history!

Starring: 何原崎長十郎, 中村鶴藏, 市川東三郎 (Chojuro Kawarazaki, Kanemon Nakamura, Shizue Yamagishi)

Humanity and Paper Balloons is 1937 black and white film directed by Sadao Yamanaka. It is his last film. Largely unknown outside of Japan until recent years, the film has been hailed by critics (Tadao Sato, Donald Ritchie), and a number of other Japanese filmmakers (Akira Kurosawa among them) as one of the most influential examples of jidaigeki, or Japanese period films. The story is set in the 18th century, and dramatically depicts the struggles and schemes of Unno, a ronin, or masterless samurai in feudal Japan. Yamanaka was drafted into the Japanese army, entering the service on the day Humanity and Paper Balloons was released theatrically, and died during the war at the age of 29, while stationed in Manchuria.

The story develops in the Tokugawa era of the 18th century, in a poor district of Tokyo, where impoverished samurai live from hand to mouth among equally poor people of lower social classes. One such ronin (masterless samurai) Matajuro, spends his day looking for work whilst his wife, Otaki, makes cheap paper balloons at home. One rainy night, Shinza, a barber, and equally penniless, impulsively abducts the daughter of a wealthy merchant, hiding her at Matajuros home. Their desperate plan has grave consequences when a ransom attempt backfires. The film, which starts and ends with suicide, is deeply pessimistic, insisting that life in feudal Japan was hellish and short for those at the foot of the social ladder...
