Music in Film

Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Tokyo Sonata has a musical title and it builds—spoiler alert!!!—to a wonderful musical climax. I don’t think it’s a perfect film, and the more I watch Japanese film, the more I’m disturbed about the political direction of Japanese society. But for music lovers, an uncut performance of Debussy‘s Clair de lune, with little visual comment, makes this longish film worth its full length.
