Twilight Time

Ready for some full- on Japanese sentimentality? Superlative tough guy Ken Takakura takes us deep into heartbreak territory in search of a happy ending. Yoji Yamada’s Hokkaido road epic throws together a trio of ‘drifters of the heart’ to see if they can solve each other’s romantic dilemmas. Also starring Chieko Baisho, Kaori Momoi, and Tetsuya Takeda; this has to be the far-East equivalent of a three-hankie picture. On Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
