A History of Postwar Japan as Told by a Bar Hostess

Rating:No Rating
Release Date:January 1, 1970
Running time:105 minutes
Cast:Emiko Akaza, Etsuko Akaza
Director:Shohei Imamura

Description: The star of this documentary is a quintessential Imamura heroine: a hard-nosed, ruthless survivor, with a sense of loyalty and an earthy sense of humor. In this movie, she sits in a Tokyo bar, which she used to own, and tells the story of the various means she used to survive, beginning with the day the atom bomb fell. It is a history of compromises and hard deeds, though there are few outright betrayals.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
