Rhapsody in August

Directed by Akira Kurosawa

1991

Rhapsody in August is a Japanese language drama about an elderly Japanese woman, caring for her four grandchildren for the summer, who learns of a long-lost brother who lives in Hawaii. Rhapsody in August is Kurosawa’s second-to-last film, and it is far from his best. The politics are questionable and the story is meandering, but the images are striking and the tone is thoughtful.

Would see.
