Summary
"Born in a rural farming village in 1918, Tomeʼ survives decades of Japanese social upheaval, as well as abuse and servitude at the hands of various men. Yet [director] Shohei Imamura ... refuses to make a victim of her, instead observing Tomeʼ as a fascinating, pragmatic creature of twentieth-century Japan. A portrait of opportunism and resilience in three generations of women"--Container
