Redlight Movie Full Download
This is only the first film of Yuzo Kawashima that I watch and I'm definitely looking for more of his work! Kawashima remains virtually unknown in the west, which is a shame, since, from what I've read, he was a pioneer of Japanese new-wave, a big influence for Shohei Imamura and was highly regarded in Japan. The film is about a young, homeless couple in search for job, that ends up in a small bar just outside the Suzaki red-light district in Tokyo. I found the film really absorbing, I actually felt that I was living too in a small house at the edge of Suzaki river, watching the trucks, the noodle delivery men, the prostitutes and their clients crossing the bridge, in and out of the district. There are also some nice scenes of the busy and full of life streets of the 50s Tokyo. Overall, this is a fascinating film, on par with the other Japanese classics from the 1950s, that deserves to be distributed in the west along with more Kawashima movies, so that we get a chance to discover this neglected director.

There is hardly any plot whatsoever and the characters act in ways that you don't believe for a second the possibility for them to be a proper couple (the wife is really annoying with her egoism on full throttle for 98% of the movie while the husband can't stop spouting "woe is me" nonsense), but it is extremely well shot and directed so kudos to the director (of whom I'm making a marathon in these days) for that. It's not even presented as a comedy like the usual from Yuzo Kawashima, so I can't believe he presented this relationship in such a way on purpose. A technically excellent footnote you'll likely to watch once, but nothing else. 350c69d7ab
