Seimetz is trying to get at some compelling truths about the human experience but the cold, distant filmmaking style creates a barrier.

Director: Kenji Mizoguchi
Cast: Yoshiaki Hanayagi, Kyoko Kagawa, Kinuyo Tanaka, Eitaro Shindo

The visual storytelling allows us to disconnect from our modern-day reality and enter an historical period that is as different from our own as the black-and-white is from color.

Tries to do a little too much and runs too long but it’s an affable mix of nostalgia and family-friendly animated action/adventure.

Unlikely to elevate the based-on-a-videogame category above the dismal level where it has wallowed for the past quarter-century.

Although the structure is designed to mimic that of a standard police procedural, the movie is really about the ugly side of human nature.

The filmmakers seem unconcerned about appealing to anyone who isn’t a 9-year old boy; aside from the occasional throw-away line, there’s little here to interest adults.
