  • Title:
    Village of dreams
  • Author: Yōichi Higashi 1934- director.; Kōshirō Shō 1931-2000, producer.; Tetsujirō Yamagami producer.
  • Description: Identical twin brothers Yukihiko and Seizo are famous artists embarking on a collaboration - a book based on their idyllic childhood in a remote hamlet near Kochi. Their beautiful paintings sweep us back to 1948, when they were in third grade. Known to everyone as "the brats", the two grapple with catfish in the river, chase birds in the woods, and cause general mischief in the village and school. But the plot is secondary to the film's wonderfully vibrant sensations of childhood - the rich details of family life, the unintentional cruelty of youth, the mysteriously beautiful nature that envelopes them, the strong emotional bond between the twins, the fierce fights they enter into a the drop of a hat - are as memorable as any film in the last decade. Director Yoichi Higashi's sixteenth film in a praise-filled career is a charming and sparkling jewel.
