About the Film:
Part of Akira Kurosawa Retrospective
Directed by Akira Kurosawa. Japan. 1947. Japanese with English subtitles. 109 min.
This affectionate paean to young love is also a frank examination by Akira Kurosawa of the harsh realities of postwar Japan. During a Sunday trip into war-ravaged Tokyo, Yuzo and Masako look for work and lodging, and affordable entertainment. Reminiscent of Frank Capra’s social-realist comedies and echoing contemporaneous Italian neorealism, One Wonderful Sunday touchingly offers a sliver of hope in dark times.
