Floating Clouds / Ukigumo - Mikio Naruse
Rue Baron Hortastraat 9
Start of our cycle with 20 movies by Mikio Naruse: http://bit.ly/NARUSE ENG A lightly-plotted film soaked in dismay, regret, longing, and debasement. Like many of Naruse’s films of the 1950s, this 1955 film was based on a novel by Fumiko Hayashi, and, this being their last ‘collaboration’, it is, perhaps fittingly, their greatest. Adrian Martin called this Naruse’s “cinema of walking,” a sort of gradual journey to an unknown destination, that for whatever the characters do, there are larger forces at play that will push them onward. This feel is compounded by Naruse’s use of many locations and a flashback structure that’s dreamlike, flowing, and tied urgently to the present than such devices typically are.
