This review is from: The Ballad of Narayama (Criterion Collection) (DVD)
A very thought provoking movie. I loved the grandma, the most important character who teaches about life, love, generosity, thanksgiving and finally misguided sacrifice to get out of the way. She could have taught her whole family and village many virtues of a high caliber human being. I wouldn't have minded if her good for nothing grandson went to Mt. Narayama instead of grandma who would have been awesome to have around until the end.
