Great melodramatic Epos
6 April 2001 | by florian_schulzSee all my reviews

"E no naka no boku no mura" is a really astonishing film absolutely deserving the silver bear from the Berlinale 1996 for Yoichi Higashi. A film about two japanese painters telling the story of their childhood on the japanese countryside this film creates a striking picture of japanese country life in 1948.
