Pigs and Battleships (1961)


When surviving conditions are hard, there might be the option to survive “the easy way”. With the difference that “the easy way” has a disproportional social, emotional and psychological cost on the long run. Shôhei Imamura shows multiple well portrayed characters to make his point. There is a distance between the Western and Japanese culture acting as an obstacle in understanding. achieving a clear cross-cultural message is a feast 🙂
