No Regrets for Our Youth
Directed by Akira Kurosawa
No Regrets for Our Youth is a Japanese language drama based on the Takigawa Incident of 1933. No Regrets for Our Youth, directed by Kurosawa only a few years before many of his better known (and better) films, is in some ways more interesting as historical artifact than film. Sometimes didactic and sometimes melodramatic, No Regrets for Our Youth, while at times frustrating, is still ultimately effective.
