One of Naruse's finest January 25, 2018
Reviewer: Shawn from Washington  
Outstanding film, easily one of the best from Naruse. And Hideko Takamine was superb playing the youngest of 3 sisters. I admired her spirit.

There are some missing subtitles in spots, but I was able to follow the story with ease. I'm happy with the purchase.

Inazuma (Lightning) Mikio Naruse, Director September 28, 2014
Reviewer: Herbert Hunsberger from Haddon Township, NJ United States  
Fast service.  Movie is in surprisingly good shape with only a few sentences towards the end of the film not subtitled.  Otherwise, very good.  Looking forward to more Naruse movies you may have
