The Ueki family may not be wealthy, but smiles are never in short supply. The father is
awarded prize money for 25 years of service to his workplace, but has it stolen on the way
home from the ceremony... This refreshingly heartwarming masterpiece carries on the
tradition of the Shochiku Ofuna-style “little citizen” films, and Nakamura's reliably proficient
direction elicits superb work from his crew and star-studded cast.

prostitution from which she attempts to escape, but... KUWANO is outstanding as the
heroine, who cannot leave her man despite knowing he is no good for her. Its color scheme and
camerawork imbue its imagery with a rich beauty and create a lyrical mise en scène.

【 November 23th – December 1st 】 Profile: NAKAMURA Noboru
Born on August 4th 1913 in Shitaya, Tokyo. Passed an assistant director exam at
Shochiku upon graduating from Faculty of Letters at The University of Tokyo in 1936,
and worked under SAITO Torajiro, SHIMAZU Yasujiro, and other directors at Ofuna
Studio. Promoted to director in June of 1941, making his debut with documentary
“Seikatsu to Rizumu” (Life and Rhythm, 41). This was followed later that year by his first
fiction film, “Kekkon no Riso” (The Ideals of Marriage). Won plaudits for his brilliant
direction of the Ofuna-style home drama “Home Sweet Home” (51). For his second color
film for Shochiku, “Natsuko no Boken” (Natsuko's Adventure, 53), he exhibited a fittingly
gorgeous directorial style that cemented his status as one of the company's leading
filmmakers. The KAWABATA Yasunari adaptation “Twin Sisters of Kyoto” (63) melded
the seasonal beauty of Kyoto with a unique story in which IWASHITA Shima plays a dual
role as twins, and was nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award.
“The River Kino” (66), adapted from ARIYOSHI Sachiko's novel, is a classic in which
NAKAMURA depicted a woman who lived through the Meiji, Taisho, and Showa periods,
and exhibited his refinement as a veteran filmmaker. Died on May 20th 1981 at the age
of 68. Posthumously honored as a member of the Order of the Rising Sun, 4th Class. His
“The Shape of Night” was screened to considerable acclaim at the Venice Film Festival in
August 2013 on the centenary of his birth.
What sets it aside as one of the most poignant films about
prostitution is its imaginative conception of her world. The camera
angles and movements, the colour scheme and editing all work
brilliantly to illustrate her constant sacrifice and lead us to
emotionally internalise the gaudy city as a dazzling parade that,
despite an offer of escape, always leads her back to her situation.
Stylistically the film anticipates the Wong Kar-wai of In the Mood for
Love and echoes Douglas Sirk at his most stirring.
----- Nick James (Sight & Sound) on “The Shape of Night”(1964)
