“A sublime comedic melodrama reaching tear-jerker proportions…Yamada consistently shows his talented story-telling techniques.”
– Gary W. Tooze, DVDBeaver.com
“A heart-warming tale that hits the right notes in the categories of drama, romance, and comedy…Yôji Yamada’s perspective of life in Japan is daring…the harsh realities are depicted in an honest manner, and, at the same time, the eternality of hope.”
– Haneen Rafi, Dawn
The sublime director Yôji Yamada’s The Yellow Handkerchief (1977), adapted from a series of 1971 columns written by American journalist Pete Hamill, tells the tale of a road trip spontaneously undertaken by a trio whose back stories are revealed through subtly nuanced flashbacks. The film was the first to receive the Best Picture award of the Japan Academy Prize.
