Top 10 Must-See Japanese Films (見るべき日本映画10本)

Top 10 Must-See Japanese Films

見るべき日本映画10本

POSTED BY GEOFF SHAKESPEARE ON MAY 26, 2011


Approaching an entire nation’s cinema can be a daunting challenge. Especially when that nation’s movie history is a hodgepodge of genres and styles like Japan’s is. In the last 100 years or so, Japanese cinema has produced works of great beauty, greater weirdness, and in the process has influenced scores of filmmakers around the world. Any list of ten Japanese films will be by definition, incomplete, but these ten films will give anyone curious about Japanese movies a sampling of what makes its films so well-respected and loved around the world.


日本のようにジャンルやスタイルがごっちゃまぜの国の映画について語るのはむつかしい。 過去100年に日本は、美しい映画、恐ろしい映画、奇怪な映画などを産み出し、世界中の数十名の監督に影響を与えた。


1. Tokyo Story

東京物語

Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai may be the most beloved Japanese film of all time, but Yasujiro Ozu’s 1953 classic Tokyo Story is regarded by many film scholars as the greatest work of Japanese cinema.

2. Seven Samurai

七人の侍

If you only ever see one Japanese film, this has got to be it. Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 masterpiece Seven Samurai is the film that not only put Japanese cinema on the map, it also inspired a generation of filmmakers across the globe with its rousing story, incredible action sequences, and outstanding performances.


3. Akira

アキラ

Any list of Japanese films has to include at least one animated feature. For many non-Japanese, anime (as cartoons are called there) is their first window into the larger world of Japanese culture. An exploration of Japanese anime can start in few better places than the 1988 classic Akira. Based on the sprawling comic of the same name, Akira boils down the essential elements of the book and presents them in a frenetic mix of psychic children, political corruption, teenage motorcycle gangs, and not one, but two full-fledged destructions of Tokyo.
