5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS NOT 1983 Imamura movie but the original 1958 sincere version
This is the 1958 version which is shot entirely on stage. It is in my opinion, better than than the 1983 remake. this is sincere and simpler and not designed to shock in the visceral sense. A work of high craftmenship

3.0 out of 5 stars Ballad of Narayama
I can say I was pleased to be introduced to the bygone age this film depicts. The images will stay with me but in the final analysis the story-line was weak and the photography (though highly praised) was dull. See the film - at least its unique.
