    In , Japanese auteur Shohei Imamura announced his retirement with his wild and wooly war drama Kanzo Sensei. His announcement clearly proved to be premature, as exhibited by this bizarre romantic drama about the power of really good sex, based on a book by Henmi Yo. Koji Yakusho -- who starred in Imamura's Unagi along with virtually every Actors: Koji Yakusho, Misa Shimizu, Mitsuko Baisho.   Shohei Imamura () is, for me, one of the greatest filmmakers, possibly the very greatest, with films like Pigs and Battleships, The Insect Woman, Eijanaika, and especially The Ballad of Narayama being some of the most unflinching and incisive depictions of the struggles of the wretched of the Earth ever filmed. (On his death, I wrote an overview of Imamura’s major films.).

      Directed by Shôhei Imamura. With Kôji Yakusho, Misa Shimizu, Mitsuko Baishô, Akira Emoto. A businessman kills his adulterous wife and is sent to prison. After the release, he opens a barbershop and meets new people, talking almost to no one except an eel he befriended while in prison/10(K).   Re: The Shohei Imamura Masterpiece Collection #20 Post by HJackson» Wed pm Yes it is a great shame that these are going OOP, although I'm sure they would only discontinue them out of absolute financial necessity.

    Shohei IMAMURA – Japan – Summary Credits Press Documents Peaceful living and dying are a central theme in this masterpiece by the Japanese Shohei Imamura, a literary film adaptation in the mountain region of Narayama.   Approaching Shohei Imamura's Intentions of Murder both requires and rewards the greatest of patience on the behalf of the viewer. At almost two and a half hours in length, its tale of a low-caste household drudge who transcends her lowly situation - not through any reaction against it, but rather by accepting her place within the order of things - will provide rather an endurance test for.

Shohei Imamura’s first four films have received significantly less academic and critical attention than his work from onward. Stolen Desire (Nusumareta yokujō, ), Ginza Station (aka Lights of Night, Nishi Ginza eki mae, ), and Endless Desire (Hateshinaki yokubō, ), made at Nikkatsu Studios, have been largely dismissed, with My Second Brother (Nianchan, ) credited with.

Born into an upper-middle-class family, the son of a doctor, Shohei Imamura was 18 years old when World War II ended. Like countless others, his life took a sharp turn during this turbulent time.A thorough exploration of the work of one of Japan’s most controversial directors.

The only Japanese director to have won the Palme d’Or from Cannes more than once, and second only to Ozu Yasujiro in the number of times he has won the prestigious Kinema Jumpo Best One award, the late Imamura Shohei was one of Japan’s leading and most controversial film directors.

A thief, a murderer, and a charming lady-killer, Iwao Enokizu (Ken Ogata) is on the run from the police. Director Shohei Imamura turns this fact-based story—about the seventy-eight-day killing spree of a remorseless man from a devoutly Catholic family—into a cold, perverse, and at times diabolically funny examination of the primitive coexisting with the modern.

More than just a true-crime /5(K).
