Synopsis

From two-time Palme d’Or-winning director Shohei Imamura comes an unforgettable human drama and a milestone in Japanese Cinema. The Ballad of Narayama is a brutal and haunting meditation on the nature of life, sex and death.

MUBI's take

Winner of the Palme D’or at the 1983 Cannes Film Festival, The Ballad of Narayama is a remake of Keisuke Kinoshita’s 1958 film of the same name. Sensual and erotic, Shohei Imamura’s take on Japanese society and its traditions is a subversive classic.
