No Regrets for Our Youth
Dir. Akira Kurosawa (1946). This dense and beautiful work is one of the director's rare films in which a woman figures prominently. Set during the militaristic 1930s, it stars Setsuko Hara as the wife of a dissident journalist. After his murder, she goes to live on his parents' farm. Her rejection of the class and gender roles assigned to her, and her transformation from genteel, middle-class young girl to uninhibited woman are at the heart of this remarkable film.
