[good point]
Shigamura Takashi's performances that he played almost without talking about the hero who is facing his "death".
Speaking of Mr. Shimura, in addition to "Godzilla" and "Mothra", the image of stubborn and Yancha's grandfather such as Okubo Hikaemon in historical drama was strong, so this remained in a different form in another form.

[Bad point]
People who stick to the office's funeral in the deceased's funeral are saying ARE COREE I would like to draw criticism of bureaucracy and office work The director Kurosawa's intention is too strong to feel intentionally.
The conflict of my son who had made my father who brought up with one hand one troubled was treated as touching degree.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
A piece depicting the theme that the late blanco scene is familiar with modern times.
It will start with a narration like "This man has not lived for twenty years", but that is not the case.
Scenes that lose my wife before the war before the war and are caught up in remembrance cuts, scenes to raise my son alone,
In other dramas and movies, people who are treated as supporting persons also show that there is a life in each.
But at the government office and at home it seems to me that it is "dead while alive" aside from the gear treatment of the ponkos.
A work that knows that it is a sickness of death and questions the meaning of living again.
Unlike the era of this work gastric cancer can be fully cured by surgery as soon as it is discovered, the environment surrounding the old age may be different from today.
But from day to day do not forget to thank you for living When is the time to do what you can to yourself to the end?
Evaluation is "better" than "very good".

It was a masterpiece and a high-profile work, I wanted to see it personally from a long time ago, but since I borrowed it at a rental shop this time, I tried to watch it.

What is it? It was a work of a theme that leads to the picture book "One million live cats".

Although he was the hero who worked for many years until the retirement age, it is the hero who worked at the workplace for a long time, but knowing that it is a body with no remaining life in the hospital at such a time, I will look back on my remaining life.

Although the main character living while working seriously and crazy until then tends to go to a so-called female play shop or taste various kinds of hobby which will be done while people live, but somewhere to suffocate You seemed to feel it.

Such a main character, while singing while swinging in a park in the sweep, it may have tasted the feeling that it is really alive as the area is wrapped in silence.

Shimura Takashi's Demonic Approaching act was also overwhelming, but it was published in 1952 and a foresight that leads to the old age problem while working more than half a century ago was felt . It was also a pleasant deep reverberation in the last.

The evaluation is "better" than very good.

"This is the stomach of the hero of this story"
"We need to accumulate more useless time"
"Do not say apology like rain."
"I feel like I have made friends with babies in Japan since I made this"
Sea cucumber Dumpling fly flavoring gum. Set meal. It and konnyaku. Mummy

Director Akira Kurosawa. Shigeru Shimura starring. Kurosawa work It is a familiar actor. I'm showing a different acting from "Seven Samurai" and "Rashomon". But after a while you do not hear the dialogue. Although it is an old work, there are things that sound is hard to hear.

The story starts from narration. Although it will be directing as an introduction of the story, we also have a glimpse of criticism of the bureaucracy system. Billy. Wilder's work is often used by narration.
It is a little boring with a plot which tends to be thought that now death is gathered thinking about living and taking action. 140 minutes is long. But Shimura 's crisis performance is worth seeing.
It was a little tedious up to the middle stage, but the luncheon was also good at the end.
When Watanabe woke up to life it was pretty stylish production that "Happy birthday to you" flowed.

One who likes this work is Rob. "Director of the highest life" or "Yes Man" recommended by Liner's work is recommended.
Although it is the same as the theme, it may be good to see "Field. Of Dreams" which is completely different style and content.

Certainly, I think that it is a masterpiece that drew firmly what it is to live, I think that the script and direction were very good.
...... If it is normal, it is the highest level content, but it was very very disappointing so it was very good.
What was disappointing is that after Watanabe's death it was very redundant. I thought that it may not be long until then.
Descriptions of the people who continue unpleasant behavior during the funeral are very long. However, I think that the moment they gained their understanding was quite hot.
Anyhow, this too long scene was pretty boring. I felt that it was a funeral about half of the movie.

The depiction of Watanabe, the fear of death coming up was very good.
I know the remaining lifespan, I just do not leave my mind to death.
But for the first time at that time people realize that they are alive.
At that time the human figure of doing something was too moving and at the same time sad.
People who are doing their best only dies soon.

That's why I died very badly, and since then, I could not have been having such a feeling of no sense of tension for a long time.
A scene where a person who is too distant talks to Gudaguda Gudaguda during a person's funeral is too long!

Well, it can be convinced if it is said to be the top of a movie depicting humanism, and you can enjoy it halfway without getting bored at all.
If it was a bit shorter then it definitely put "highest" on it.
It is true that I wanted you to draw only Watanabe 's life, not that funeral debate.

Watanabe got the last one.
This may be the most precious thing for human beings.

After seeing Watanabe who works for a city hall as a stomach cancer and knowing that it is a half year's life, the story reunited with playing around with a writer who got acquainted at a drinking place while taking a rest from the government office,
I will proceed with the flow saying that I will be in the final work by being inspired by that way of life.

Watanabe sings Watanabe in the work "Short Short Love Into Maiden", Watanabe who takes a breath in swing after finishing his last work,
Together with Watanabe's night at Watanabe Talking about Watanabe's day in the city hall Municipal people who complain about the work of the government office, the landscape of the park where Watanabe lived, and the scenery of the city office without Watanabe,
These were speaking to Akira Kurosawa 's voice to no more.

Shimura Takashi is a cheesecake real song.
I think that someone who can sing such a song will not come out anymore.

First of all, it is old, although this can not be helped, the sound is difficult to hear. Many places I do not know what he is saying. However, this can not be evaluated.
I have seen many films of the Showa Monochrome until now, because the film of the era has not been felt interesting to me until now, so I negatively looked at the representative work of Japan that has been appreciated by many people That is why I do not want to.
I saw this as a part of it, but unfortunately I could not feel it is good. It can be said that it took a lot of trouble to see it rather boring.
I may be used to the current movie too much, and maybe there is no eye to watch, but the theme of the movie is being pressed too much and it is impersonable. I understand that I want to show this, but I am persistent in the rush of the production showing that theme.
There are also many boring descriptions that are painstakingly depicted.
I am rude to the master Kurosawa, but I frankly thought so.

I think that there are various people in the world, I think that it is a wonderful work packed with director Kurosawa's message whose human smell is good.
The reality in which the life expectancy was declared.
Behavioral ability to look back on my life and try something.
Even if anyone can not understand their true feelings,
Even if I forget someday, I will leave a proof that I lived in this world I decided to do.
I think that I also have to think about living again.

A scene that sings a song while sitting on a swing is a word that Shigeru Takashi's acting is wonderful.

It shows us a weakness of human beings within a group altogether. And it is a work that tells us that there is always a possibility of a handful from among them.
The last scene in particular can hit that human weakness. However, I feel that I have left one hopes of hope.
Director Kurosawa "I wanted to draw a tragedy born of this man's flirt" as a story. However, humans do not know they will face them. I also think that it is a defense instinct in survival. Of course the director will neither intend to condemn the tragedy nor intend to deny. I just tried to draw the human itself.
Therefore, the last scene seems like a message containing irony, directed to those who were impressed by seeing this work. Watching movies, impressed and thinking about living. And from the next day, I will live my days again. This is like the people who screw up Kimura at the end.

Kurosawa does not make excuses in the movie about the pollution and weakness of human beings. There are only people drawn there. It depicts the beauty of living human beings even strongly.

There is a famous night's swing scene. Shimura Takashi's performance at that scene is very amazing. It is as if there is a quiet heart there is jealousy and sorrow miserable. It is also understood that it is said to be "one of the most famous scenes remaining in the history of Japanese movies". I can not cry.
This is not a scene to cry. Shikura Takashi's expressions are being clamped.

If gastric cancer can be found at an early stage now it will be sick if it cuts the stomach and it will be almost healed, perhaps 50 years ago it was not so.
Contrary to Shimura Takashi who was dressed as a mummy man who was thrown down in the depths of despair In contrast with the active Mr. Odagiri Mikiko young daughter Odagiri Mikiko and his son Mitsuko Kaneko and his husband and wife Happy Birthday To You The song of! Will deepen further deepening the shadow of the main character.

Who said that he said "Just being alive, people are worth".
There is no value in living.
Only after doing it with the intention to do something,
Value is born in living.

The hero died lonely.
There are few people who evaluate his achievement equally.
But he must be good at all such things.
What I accomplished was that I was "living"
However, I was satisfied purely and it died.
His satisfying expression in the snowy, scenes of the park,
This is expressed briefly.

I saw the evaluation of other people here and thought again,
There are ten ways to receive 10 people,
Even if one person sees it many times, I can make a different view from that moment.
A masterpiece filled with Kurosawa 's message.

I did not see the whole content as part of this movie, school class, but I saw it.

Because I knew the contents to a certain extent, I can understand what Kurosawa wanted to convey.

It is a humanitarian movie.

Strange constitution, acting strange, direction of strangeness ... Anyway it is a wonderful movie, but feelings go ahead and can not talk well ...
An ordinary song such as Happy Birthday and short life is deeply deep and echoes in my heart.

A movie I want to incorporate into the curriculum per compulsory education.
What he says is that I do not see much of this, I feel like the last scene of this movie.

It is the summit of Mr. Ozu's Japanese story and the Japanese movie contemporary drama (although it is a movie 50 years ago).
Shimura Takashi's range of performance is comparable to Mr. Kasami.
