A heartbreaking, compasionate masterpiece
I watched this movie years ago, which does affect my review, as the details are not so fresh in my mind. Yet, this movie left a strong mark all this time; it is one of the best movies ever made (and I have seen many). Like Ikiru, another masterpiece by Kurosawa, it is an understated study of dignity and human character. It is one of these art pieces that elicits a huge sense of compassion towards the human race.
The movie depicts the lives of residents of a down and out neighbourhood in Tokyo. The characters maintain fragile livelihoods in a rigid society, striving to maintain dignity through various actions, real or imaginary.
