Ballad of Narayama Ballad of Narayama Ballad of Narayama
This masterpiece by the great Japanese director Shohei Imamura is a tale of a poor primitive Japanese villiage that kills off anyone over the age of 70 because of a scarcity of food. The film is quietly punctuated with many shots of animals, including frogs. There is no comment on the frogs by the characters, they are just shown as part of the background.
