Nagasaki: Memories of My Son
母と暮らせば (Haha to Kuraseba)
Sun., July 17 at 4:15 pm
Introduction with composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.
August 9, 1948. Nagasaki, Japan. An aging midwife named Nobuko (Sayuri Yoshinaga) is visited by the ghost of her son Koji (Kazuya Ninomiya), whom she lost to the atomic bomb. From then on Koji visits his mother frequently to reminisce and catch up on lost time. Their biggest topic of conversation is Koji's kind-hearted fiancée Machiko (Haru Kuroki), who regularly visited Nobuko over the three years since Koji's death. Machiko and Koji both seem unable to fully accept Koji's death, but Nobuko slowly encourages them to move on. Yoji Yamada's moving, star-studded film is a complementary response to playwright Hisashi Inoue's seminal work The Face of Jizo, about a father-daughter relationship in the aftermath of the Hiroshima bombing, and the master director's self-proclaimed attempt at making "the most important film in his life."
2015. 130 min. Blu-ray, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Yoji Yamada. With Sayuri Yoshinaga, Kazuya Ninomiya, Haru Kuroki, Tadanobu Asano, Kenichi Kato.
Winner of 11 prizes at the Japan Academy Prize including Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Lead Actor and Best Lead Actress.
