| It's a love story but...
Jiro is a sailor. His best mate is a jockey. When the latter falls in love with Masako, a gangster's girl there is big trouble for everyone. As always my Japanese is insufficient to do justice to the movie, but I enjoyed the lighter opening scenes at the harbor and the racetrack.I was beginning to think I had found that rare thing, an old Japanese movie without lots of gangster related violence but alas that was not to be.(Maybe I just watch the wrong movies?) Anyhow, most of the movie looks great; production standards are high and although no Seabiscuit, this looks as slick and as glossy as Hollywood B movies of the same era. The music is good too
