A lonely young boy is caught up in a sinister and intriguing murder-mystery in this classic British film based on a short story by Graham Greene and directed with great style by Carol Reed, both of who received Academy Award nominations. It was the first film on which Greene and Reed collaborated and remains both a moving portrayal of lost innocence and a genuine classic of British cinema.
Ozu revisits his themes on postwar Japan with a storyline similar to Ozu's own Woman of Tokyo. With her husband away at the frontline of the battlefield, a young mother has to support her family all by herself. In order to save her ailing son, the young mother was forced to prostitute herself for one night. Upon her husband's return from the war, she honestly told him what had happened. However, her husband responds with a shocking and physical savagery that is so atypical of Ozu. Tanaka and Sano ignite these complex and tortures roles with profound humanism.
