Considering what the Japanese people have had to tolerate over the past six decades or so; including the aftermath of WW2, the period between then and now has proven their worth when it comes to cinematography.

This film: recalling an historic period of childhood in a struggling country, is a wonderful evocation of striving to make the most out of what was available to them at the time. It is all to do with memories and brotherly love, beginning when they were young, innocent and utterly charming, despite the odd moment of inevitable mischievousness and squabbling. (The riverbank scene with them whacking each other with a small cane is understandably amusing, despite their genuine suffering) But, boys will be boys, as the apt saying goes.

This is a factual story about growing up and making a success of their lives, and can only be recognised and respected as such. As one of the brothers stated in later life: ‘They were days of irreplaceable value’.

It is a lovely, lovely film from beginning to end, and the two little boys are a delight to behold. The music is more in tune with Medieval England, but it fits in well.

N.B.
Anyone who dwells on the feature that is absurdly labelled ‘Controversial’ should hang their heads in shame and stick to ‘Coronation Street’ or ‘The Muppet Show’, for the scenes depicting full nudity are just as charming and natural as the film itself; with acting that cannot be faulted, and especially as far as the seven year old twins are concerned. (With apologies to ‘The Muppet Show’)
