    Thanks so much! Yanagimachi/Nakagami’s works are so rich, moving and mysteriously expressive, so glad they connect together to make those films!
    If you enjoy this movie, I recommend watching / other Yanagimachi’s films (like http://rarelust.com/farewell-to-the-land-1982/) / The Youth Killer (1976) by Hasegawa Kazuhiko / Sometimes a Great Notion (1970) by Paul Newman, and also reading ‘Tropic of the Sea’ (manga) by Kon Satoshi (exactly the same topic as the film)
    Thanks again ;)))))
