A Japanese film with English sub-titles
Starring Yujiro Ishihara
This delightful film is based on the logbook of a young Japanese who sailed single-handed from Osaka to San Francisco.
Richard Roud, film critic of The Guardian, mentioned Kon Ichikawa's remarkable film as being among the best of 1967's crop. Despite its theme - that of a lonely sailor - the movie is far from being monotonous, and is full of warm, humorous touches, notably a scene when the solitary lad discovers that to sit down and have a good cry does him a power of good!
