OK, enough with the [*] vehicles for this movie. There are plenty of the sort, I won't exhaust the source.

So, Yôji Yamada's

written with Akira Miyazaki.

A tragedy and a renaissance for a family of miners, leaving Kyushu and settling as farmers in Hokkaido. Most of the movie tells the trip between Nagasaki and Hokkaido. Soft spoken, very well acted by Chieko Baishô,

Hisashi Igawa (her husband) and Chishû Ryû (the grand father). Many moments of despair, and some happy times too, especially in the very end.

Documentary-like, through the trip, about Japan in 1970.

(Osaka World Fair.)

Trains, trains, trains:

(and boats too).

We stop and go in Nagasaki, Hiroshima, Osaka, Tokyo and finally east of Hokkaido. And the trip is worth the admission fee.

Tragi-comédie — plus tragique que comique, mais qui se termine sur une note heureuse — que cette histoire d'une famille catholique et ouvrière, qui quitte son île de Kyushu et l'emploi de mineurs pour s'installer comme fermiers à Hokkaido.

Encore une fois, Chieko Baishô

est sensationnelle, et les deux autres acteurs principaux sont très bien aussi.

Outre l'histoire de la famille — je pense que "famille" est la traduction du titre japonais — le film vaut aussi pour son aspect quasi-documentaire sur le Japon de 1970, en pleine activité industrielle, en pleine demande consumériste, en pleine transformation.

Je recommande la vision de ces 106 minutes.

When I lived in Japan, it was in an Osaka suburb right near the Expo '70 fairgrounds. The Tower of The Sun is still there, and the grounds are now home to a massive botanical garden.
