The Human Condition

人間の條件 | Ningen no jōken

Trailer
Directed by Masaki Kobayashi
Japan, 1959
Drama, War, History

Synopsis

Masaki Kobayashi’s mammoth humanist drama is one of the most staggering achievements of Japanese cinema. A raw indictment of its nation’s wartime mentality as well as a personal existential tragedy, Kobayashi’s riveting, gorgeously filmed epic is novelistic cinema at its best.
