Shohei Imamura created a masterpiece of universal value and was unanimously awarded the Golden Palm of the Cannes Film Festival ...
With beautiful landscapes and humanitarian sentimentality "The Ballad of Narayama" is elegant, is the elements of extreme human beauty, this is perhaps the best explanation of what it means to be human. As usual, Shohei Imamura draws a direct parallel between the basic units and instincts (hunger, greed, lust, anger, envy) of people and other animals. Outstanding movie!
