Sapporo Story (1987)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2000-12-25
Summary: Depressing
Lovely northern Japan scenery, with fairly convincing performances from the leads in this melodrama of foolishness and greed. But very grim and depressing, and very much "so-what?". The female characters are treated apallingly, and despite this being consistent with the story and entirely believable, it's difficult to watch. I really cannot recommend this film.
