when a woman ascends the stairs letterboxd

But somehow it was elevated. Fortunately, it never feels forced nor too sentimental, which the story might suggest. More details at An incredibly moving film. Like a constantly smiling Setsuko Hara looking for solutions to her seemingly inescapable economic, social, emotional and marital situation, surrounding circumstances pushes her to her limits and that is where the real character study unfolds and lets Takamine's stunning acting abilities to flourish, including those of bursting into tears. I'm miserable! "When a Woman Ascends the Stairs" is set in a world that seems just as polished and sophisticated as Naruse's craftsmanship when it comes to films.

When a Woman Ascends the Stairs might be Japanese filmmaker Mikio Naruse's finest hour—a delicate, devastating study of a woman, Keiko (played heartbreakingly by Hideko Takamine), who works as a bar hostess in Tokyo's Movies about/starring women and girls of all ages. She describes life's vicious cycle: acting cheerful around drunks, dressing and living well to convey confidence, needing money for these expenses and for her demanding mother and brother, and knowing she's growing older. Keiko, a middle-aged bar hostess who must choose to either get married or buy a bar of her own. لكن الاشجار التي تصف على الطرقات يمكن أن تنبت براعم جديدة، مهما كانت الرياح باردة أنا أيضاً يجب أن أكون قوية، كالرياح التي تعصف حولي. 1,507 films 7,237 123 Edit, Constantly updating.

I can handle the truth. So much emotion delivered with constraint, unyielding yet conflicted as she seems to brilliantly portray every emotion and/or feeling known to humans. Some strong performances though at times a little melodramatic in a way that didn't work for me but really good movie here.

For information, go to http://www.japan1960.blogspot.com Even lying here, thoughts of bills torment my dreams. A beautiful and moving character study of a brave, young woman trying to maintain her dignity in an unforgiving and competitive Japanese society, where she have to make choices that contradict her own values and principles. A sophisticated, refined and polished world. But this is not a wholly pessimistic film. No one can stop her from trying to ascend those stairs, even if she always finds herself at the bottom. please give this a watch! IMDb It's not even a business exchange.

The veil of social decency morphs into a veil of affection, relations predicated on the commodity of love making true human connection impossible to find. This is all accentuated by a classy score and evocative cinematography that brings Ginza to life. Patrons go to bars to escape the pressures of the world, the responsibilities of their families, the burden of their work; their love of this world might be real, but it can never be true. Now I see why lumenal loves this film so much, campaigning passionately for this to be the starting point of my venture into Naruse's filmography. Keiko has a quiet dignity that attracts men, but are they what they seem? Adegan tersebut merupakan sebuah simbol sosial mendalam mengenai perjalanan karakter utamanya menuju dunia yang dipenuhi oleh kaum pria yang mendominasi, dimana para wanita menjadi sosok yang diobjektifikasi.

Naruse’s perfectly judged masterpiece knows that women are consistently hindered by society, and often the more they rise the more they are pushed down. Keiko is a thirty-year-old, middle class widow who works as a hostess in a bar. With Hideko Takamine, Tatsuya Nakadai, Masayuki Mori, Reiko Dan. Note: The list excludes mini-series, documentary, animated and short films. We follow Hideko Takamine's tragic character ( Reminded me of Ozu-hara, Machiko-Mizoguchi) , a career cut out for a male dominated society, trying to establish her Independence. Immediately, the statements about the socioeconomic structure of Japan are spoken. - Gorgeous b&w cinematography, slow af slow cinema that took me multiple tries to finally sit down and finish all the way through. They are imposed. Naruse’s perfectly judged masterpiece knows that women are consistently hindered by society, and often the more they rise the more they are pushed down. She enters a world of objectification, where patriarchal systems take on a cynical new air. Thanks to Lumenal here on Letterboxd I made it my mission to see this one as soon as possible, and now it feels like I've been introduced to a whole new world of Japanese cinema. They are imposed. please give this a watch! Her ability is implied throughout the film; she is portrayed as a woman who would be great at running a bar or doing more or less anything, if she just had funding. It really seems to reflect a particular time in post-war Japan, with everyone so obsessed with money and what they can get for it, the human tolls are brutal. As her youth slips away, a virtuous geisha (Hideko Takamine) ponders whether opening her own bar is worth the price of her honor. Effortlessly conveying a breadth of nuance and depth through subtle body language and facial expressions, Takamine creates of one of the most layered and intricate characters I've seen (with help from Kikushima's script). And the film matches her quiet, graceful elegance with its austere tone and disposition, aided in part by a smart, jazzy xylophone score. I've been putting off watching this because I thought it was going to be quite a formal and serious affair based on the poster and title, but I knew I was wrong the moment the jazzy theme started playing to the opening credits. It's my first time seeing a Mikio Naruse film, also first time seeing the beautiful Hideko Takamine on screen. Nuansa sendu mengalir secara perlahan sepanjang filmnya. This is character development at its finest, a fully realized portrait of a human being stuck in…. And her options for funding are entirely dominated and decided by men, all of whom want things from her they have no right to, no reasonable claim to.

One of my favorite Naruse films, featuring a remarkable performance by the great Hideko Takamine. But this is not a wholly pessimistic film. In one blurb I read online, she plays an "ageing Ginza bar hostess", but Mama-san, as she's known (her real name is Keiko), is just turning 30; her nickname suggests the blurb may not be inaccurate, but if so it's very much just another commentary on the society depicted in the film. It's not even a business exchange. According to Ruben, a coworker who also happens to know a lot about cinema, Naruse (1905-1969) is, after Kurosawa, Mizoguchi and Ozu, "the 4th and often forgotten great Japanese director". Kamera Naruse yang tidak pernah bergerak mengingat kan saya akan Ozu, tapi penyuntingan beritmenya…. Even lying here, thoughts of bills torment my dreams. When a Woman Ascends the Stairs - Weduwe Keiko is een ‘mama-san’, barvrouw in de rosse buurt van Tokio. Another great piece from the Japanese New Wave, and what a year 1960 was.

Show All… I love this film. The performance by Hideko Takamine is powerful, she's a charismatic woman and she inhabits the screen with such grace and force. Anybody claiming to be a hardcore fan of Japanese cinema must recognize the name and talent of the great Hideko Takamine, who stars in her role as Keiko, a woman that seems to be deprived of options. Each route has dangers, including investors demanding a return on their loans.

Does she actually have choices? The saintly aura that the protagonist, beautifully by Hideko Takamine, creates around her ultimately brings her down even further. Directed by Mikio Naruse.
