Carmen Comes Home at Japan Society


カルメン故郷に帰る (Karumen Kokyo ni Kaeru)

Japan Society’s first Monthly Classics screening of the season kicks off with a restoration of Japan’s first color film. In this breezy musical comedy, exotic dancer Lily Carmen (an irresistible Hideko Takamine) returns to her quiet countryside home from the big city in grand fashion, immediately causing a stir as she frolics and sings among the town’s green fields in colorful, revealing outfits with her equally carefree sidekick Maya (Toshiko Kobayashi). Both a subtle satire on the influence of postwar American culture and a piece of lighthearted female-centric escapism, Carmen Comes Home endures as one of director Keisuke Kinoshita’s most beloved films. Screening in recognition of Shochiku’s 120th anniversary.

1951, 86 min., DCP, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Keisuke Kinoshita. With Hideko Takamine, Shuji Sano, Chishu Ryu, Kuniko Igawa, Takeshi Sakamoto, Toshiko Kobayashi.

Time:Friday, September 4, 7 PM
Japan Society
