Full movie description "Anjô-ke no butôkai":After Japan's loss in the war, the wealthy, cultured, liberal Anjo family have to give up their mansion and their way of life. They hold one last ball at the house before leaving. The seemingly cold, cynical son secretly grieves for his defeated father and the values that the war destroyed, while the daughter tries to prevent father from taking his life and to find her own place in the new Japan.
Reviews of the Anjô-ke no butôkai"The Ball at the Anju House" tells the story of a family that has declined in wealth and status. The reason behind this is the war and new constitution that has ended the peerage and aristocracy plus very high property taxes. Their big home is mortgaged to the hilt. Their former chauffeur (Takashi Kanda)wants to buy it. Now also what used to be unthinkable is that he loves and wants to marry one of the Anju sisters (Yumiko Aizome). The head of the household (Osamu Takizawa) holds out the unrealistic hope that the man (Masao Shimizu) who holds the mortgage will forgive the debt. The other sister (Setsuko Hara) has adapted to the new reality. Her brother (Masayuki Mori) is still acting like a playboy.
The movie is very meaty in bringing us clear insights into all the characters and struggles. It's a drama that sometimes becomes melodrama, but not all that much exaggerated. It's a joy to watch such good writing and how it's brought to life on the screen around the vehicle of the ball, before, during and after. Each character revolves around his or her own situation, but they are woven together extremely well into a satisfying whole. We basically see 4 sub-plots: Kanda pursuing Aizome; Takizawa dealing with Shimizu and operating as patriarch; Hara moving in and out of everyone else's doings, trying to get them to adapt; and Mori, who has had an affair with a servant and also has pursued Shimizu's daughter.
This is really a very good movie, and it illuminates social relationships of the time.
