Set in Japan during the Second World War, Saburo (Eiji Okada) and Keiko (Yoshiko Kuga) meet for the first time on an underground platform while air raid sirens go off on the street above them. Amidst the jostling throngs of people their fingers touch, marking their first beautiful encounter. Saburo, who holds family trauma from the war, finds himself cornered until he falls for Keiko, a poor but cheerful young artist. As the war reaches a grim milestone and the country desperately shoves more and more of its young people to the front, Saburo soon receives a call-up notice which threatens the prospects of the two lovers.

A wartime romance depicting an achingly beautiful juxtaposition of the brutality of war with sentimental love. Deemed as a major success from both an artistic and financial perspective, Saburo and Keiko’s farewell kiss through a train window remains one of the most iconic scenes in the history of Japanese cinema. Tadashi Imai’s tragic romance was considered for Japan’s submission to the Venice Film Festival in Protected content , but ultimately lost out to Rashomon.
