The broad sentimentality of this 1952 melodrama isn't characteristic of Mikio Naruse's best work, but it did give him one of his biggest successes on the domestic front and for years was the only Naruse film available in the West. Kinuyo Tanaka, a great actress under any circumstances, stars as a young widow working to maintain her late husband's dry-cleaning business while bringing up her three children. With Kyoko Kagawa and Akihiko Katayama. In Japanese with subtitles. 98 min.
