BLACK RAIN

Shohei Imamura, Japan, 1989, Arrow Films, Arthouse

“This is not an anti-nuclear message movie. Only Shohei Imamura could have made a film in which the bomb at Hiroshima is simply the starting point for an unforgiving critique of Japanese society itself.” -- Roger Ebert

This unforgettable tale of the atomic age swept the 1990 Japanese Academy Awards, and is the harrowing Eastern equivalent to American works like TESTAMENT and THE DAY AFTER. Five years after the lethal Hiroshima bomb blast, the head of a household struggles to help his aging niece who, despite a clean bill of health from local doctors, cannot find a husband due to backward societal prejudices facing bomb survivors.
