Love Letter (Koibumi)

Part of the Social Studies: Six Films by Kinuyo Tanaka Strand

Body

Based on a popular serialised novel, Kinuyo Tanaka’s directorial debut was a success with audiences and critics alike. Lovesick veteran, Reikichi (Mori) is a go-between, writing letters for Japanese women to American GI’s. His work reunites him with his childhood sweetheart Michiko (Kuga), and so begins a heart-breaking drama exploring love and social dislocation in the aftermath of the American Occupation of Japan.
