Considered one of the finest late Naruses and a model of film biography, A Wanderer’s Notebook features remarkable performances by Hideko Takamine – Phillip Lopate calls it “probably her greatest performance” – and Kinuyo Tanaka as mother and daughter living from hand to mouth in Twenties Tokyo. Based on the life and career of Fumiko Hayashi, the novelist whose work Naruse adapted to the screen several times, A Wanderer’s Notebook traces her bitter struggle for literary recognition in the first half of the twentieth century – her affairs with feckless men, the jobs she took to survive (peddler, waitress, bar maid), and her arduous, often humiliating attempts to get published in a male-dominated culture.

A very funny, gorry and action packed film. Story is weak but performances bySaif Ali Khan, and Kunal Khemu make it up.

Mission accomplie pour le commandant Nacimento dont le second volet de ses aventures reussi le tour de force de continuer tout en completant de maniere intelligente le premier film.L'ambiance change, les tenants et aboutissants aussi. L'ensemble continue de marcher. C'est ca qui est fort!
