The Marriage of Yasushi

Japan, 1986 (MIFF 1987, Time and Timeless - Japanese Video Art)

Director: Mako Idemitsu

This tape is about a man who has supported post-war Japan and is a frugal battler. His wife has lost faith in him and has dedicated her life to her son. The son's marriage disturbs the almost incestuous relationship which exists between the mother and her son. This is a recurring theme in modern Japan.
