Storyline

Keizo Ishizu (Shuji Sano), owner of a car shop in Tokyo, meets Yasuko Ikeda (Setsuko Hara), the daughter of a former aristocratic family, on a matchmaking date arranged by Mr. Sato (Takeshi Sakamoto), a regular customer. They agree to start dating. At first it looks fun: he enjoys his first experience watching the ballet, and she finds herself getting into the excitement of a boxing match. But the doubts creep in, complicated by their differing social status. At the same time, Keizo's younger brother Goro (Keiji Sada) also decides to get married, going through a very easy courtship. With Keizo and Yasuko, however, it's on and off and on again, up until the very end. Written by rowerivers

Pretty good
21 June 2015 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

Gentle marriage comedy from Kinoshita. Shuji Sano is a 34 year old man, a successful businessman but pretty unsophisticated. His friend introduces him to a potential bride in Setsuko Hara. At first she seems perfect, but as their courtship continues, Sano discovers there are some catches: her family is broke, so marrying a rich man might solve their problems. Hara's father is in prison. Also, Hara was engaged to a man who died a year and a half ago. In her own words, she used all her love and affection up on him. At first I was a little disappointed in how it ended. It seemed a little abrupt. But the more I thought about it, the more I liked it. Overall, a pretty good little film.
