Από την imdb, για την πρωταγωνίστρια, στο ρόλο της «Ναστάζιας», Setsuko Hara, την «Γκρέτα Γκάρμπο της Ιαπωνίας»:

Setsuko Hara (or Hara Setsuko) (1920- ) became one of Japan's best loved stars over her 30-year film career. Her signature character type, variations on a daughter devoted to her parents and home, inspired the nickname that stayed with her until retirement; The Eternal Virgin. To some extent, reality mirrored her roles in these films. In a society which considers marriage and parenting as almost obligatory, she remained single and childless, something of a controversy in Japan in the 1950s. Fortunately she was popular enough to avoid criticism but the 50s were still a hard decade. She was plagued by ill health, missing out on several top roles as a result, and she witnessed the bizarre death of her cameraman brother in a freak train accident on set.

In 1963 shortly after the death of her mentor, director Yasujiro Ozu, she suddenly walked away from the film industry. At the age of 43 and at the height of her popularity she bluntly refused to perform again, angering her fans, the industry and the press. She implied acting had never been a pleasure and that she had only pursued a career in order to provide for her large family, this explanation is seen as the cause of her popularity backlash. She moved to a small house in picturesque Kamakura where she remained, living alone (though apparently sociable with friends) and refusing all roles offered.

She is undoubtedly best known for her work with Yasujiro Ozu, making six films with the great director including the so-called 'Noriko' trilogy, of which Tokyo Story (1953) is probably the best known worldwide. She also worked with Akira Kurosawa, Mikio Naruse, Hiroshi Inagaki and many others.


Και μια ενδιαφέρουσα πληροφορία από τη Wiki:
Originally intended to be a two-part film with a running time of 265 minutes, Hakuchi was severely cut by the studio, against Kurosawa's wishes, after a single poorly-received screening of the full-length version. The director's cut has never been released, and thus the theatrical release is a 166 minute cut omitting 100 minutes. According to renowned Japanese film scholar Donald Richie, there are no existing prints of the original 265 minute version. Kurosawa would return to Shochiku forty years later to make Rhapsody in August, and, according to Alex Cox, is said to have searched the Shochiku archives for the original cut of Hakuchi, to no avail.

Εξηγείται το "disjointed" της κριτικής.

Εξηγείται το "disjointed" της κριτικής.
Δεν υπάρχει ταινία που κάποια πλάνα της δεν έχουν κοπεί είτε από το σκηνοθέτη είτε μετά από υπόδειξη της παραγωγής μέχρι να φτάσει στις αίθουσες.
Σχεδόν όλες οι ταινίες έχουν μεγαλύτερη διάρκεια από αυτήν που έχουν όταν φτάνουν στις σκοτεινές αίθουσες και δε μιλάμε για διαφορά ολίγων λεπτών.
Συνεπώς το "πετσοκόψιμο" το υφίστανται αρκετοί σκηνοθέτες...

Ε, ναι, αλλά και το πετσόκομμα θέλει την τέχνη του. Τουλάχιστον ας το κάνουν διακριτικά και «καλλιτεχνικά».

Αυτό εννοώ, ότι μπορεί το κακό αισθητικό αποτέλεσμα να οφείλεται στο κόψιμο αλλά αυτό δεν πρέπει να αποτελεί δικαιολογία για το κακό αποτέλεσμα για το δημιουργό.. Εγώ δεν μπορώ να πω οτί είμαι φανατικός του Κουροσάβα, προτιμώ τον Όζου και το Μιζογκούτσι αλλά και μερικούς από τους νεότερους....

Ω, Θεέ μου. Είσαι σίγουρα ο Βασίλης.
