Mr and Mrs Shizuma, and their niece Yasuko, make their way through the ruins of Hiroshima, just after the atomic bomb has dropped. Five years later, Yasuko is living with her aunt and uncle, and her senile grandmother, in a village containing many of the bomb survivors. Yasuko does not appear to be affected by the bomb, but the Shizuma's are worried about her marriage prospects, as she could succumb to radiation sickness at any time.Extremely powerful film by Imamura which exposes the effects of Hiroshima's bombing, but like the characters, does not dwell obsessively on the event. There is no shock value to this film. That would have been too easy. This is as subtle an expression as you will find, hence heightening the effectiveness.
