Twenty-Four Eyes (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on August 8, 2009

I watch a lot of movies, and I have a bad memory.  So they all tend to blur together and I usually forget them quickly.  But as the opening credits rolled on this one, I was surprised how many of the scenes came flooding back to me.  It’s a sign of Kinoshita’s storytelling prowess.  Although sometimes mawkishly sentimental, he easily gets the viewer to develop intense bonds with the characters.  The final chapter of the movie is such an effective tear-jerker that I find myself crying every time Miss Oishi does (which is about every 20 seconds).  Rating: 9
