One Wonderful Sunday
I enjoyed this Kurosawa film. It was given only 2.5 stars by Turner Classic Movies, but it was a poignant glimpse into postwar Japan (1947). The young woman is an optimist and her (ex-soldier) fiance is desperately discouraged. Both are in dire straits economically. It was a bit slow moving but a delicate piece of emotional observation. The film aired yesterday, which would have been Kurosawa's 100th birthday.
