One Wonderful Sunday

Dir. Akira Kurosawa (1947). This contemporary tale concerns the alternately whimsical and despairing adventures of an impoverished young couple as they wander through a postwar Tokyo marked by the presence of war orphans and ruined buildings. They find romantic magic when he tries to conduct a symphony in an abandoned band shell. If not major Kurosawa, this sweet, uncomplicated story is a work of considerable charm.

ONE WONDERFUL SUNDAY - Chieko Nakakita's Masako is irrepressible... Isao Numasaki is just great as Yuzo... a moving story of survival, and (true) love...  the film captured me from the very beginning... this one will make you laugh and give a hard tug at your heartstrings... the last 5 minutes is so touching and tender it almost hurts... and, I'm sure that Yuzo and Masako met again that next Sunday... and again the Sunday after that... and that she would always hear his 'symphony'... and eventually, they did get that little place of theirs... and somewhere out in the celluloid universe there is a happy couple sitting on their porch overlooking their garden... and they're having many Wonderful Sunday's. This is Kurosawa's BEST--Mike
