English-subtitled Screening: The Heart

Movies

A 1955 film adaptation of author Soseki Natsume’s later work that has been widely read all over the world. The novel was written after Soseki was shocked by the news that Gen. Nogi immolated himself to attend on Emperor Meiji beyond the grave. One summer day at the end of the Meiji era, Hioki befriends Nobuchi, whom he met in Kamakura. Getting to know Nobuchi, he begins to wonder about the relationship between Nobuchi’s loneliness and his wife. While Hioki is away in his home town to care for his father, he receives a thick letter from Nobuchi. It says, “By the time this letter gets to you, I will no longer be in this world.” The letter, like a will, also reveals a tragic story that happened between himself, his friend, and a girl when he was young. This universal masterpiece in which egoism in human nature emerges was directed by Kon Ichikawa, who is known for Tokyo Olympiad (1965), The Makioka Sisters (1983), and so on.
