Produced, written and directed by Shindo Kaneto. Photographed by Kuroda Kiyomi. Music by Hayashi Hikaru. Edited by Enoki Kazuo. With Tonoyama Taiji, Otowa Nobuko and Tanaka Shinju. Produced by the Kindai Eiga Kyokai. B/W, 1960. 92mins
Winner of the Grand Prize at the 1960 Moscow Film Festival this is a feature-length film made entirely without dialogue - but with full sound and a feature- length score. Director Shindo, who called this picture "a cinematic poem," wanted to make a film everyone would understand about a family struggling for existence on a small island in the Inland Sea. Showing their struggle during the four seasons - summer to spring - the director later famous for Onibaba made a film unlike anyother.
