Ken Takakura, a veteran of dozens of films sometimes referred to as "the Japanese Clint Eastwood," won Best Actor honors at the Montreal World Film Festival for his moving portrayal of an aging railroad attendant. The once thriving mining town he lives and works in is quietly dying and the railway station is scheduled to be closed. Stoically braving the winter cold and an uncertain future, he is haunted by memories of the wife and daughter he lost years ago. In Japanese with English & Korean subtitles.
Yasuo Furuhata---Japan---1999---110 mins.
