[Smap] Kimura’s Movie – Love and Honor Showing in USA



An impeccably made classic Japanese period picture in which a nobility of spirit is tested amid the most beautiful of settings, revealing the harshness and hypocrisy of a feudal society of the utmost formality and rigidity. —- Kevin Thomas @ Los Angeles Times

Thanks to its focus on internal struggle and domestically confined drama, Love and Honor is the wilting lily of Yamada’s trilogy, albeit an exceptionally satisfying romance. — Simon Abrams@ New York Press
