The Naked Island

Brief recommendation

(Edit) 30/01/2009

The scene of the husband running as fast as he can to locate the doctor on the island are an artistic feat. A very moving film; I have been thinking about it since I watched it. In brief: thinking about politics, the family unit, the individual, community, love, severity and beauty of existence and of nature.

The special features on the DVD reveal interesting contextual notes: that Kaneto Shindo was prolific, not choosy about what genre (dare to say even quality) film he made using money from the popular films to finance his more artistic projects. This film was shot on a shoestring budget; it won the Grand Prize at the 1960 Moscow Film Festival.

Hghly recommend this for anyone interested in how we live our daily lives.
