Run of the mill melodrama about 2 sons of a geisha
7 August 2017 | by pscamp01See all my reviews

The Road I Travel With You is the story of two young men who are the sons of a deceased businessman and his mistress. Stigmatized by their social status, the two men struggle to find their place in society. The older son is embittered because the family of the woman he loves refuses to allow her to marry him, while the younger son is attending college and is optimistic about his future. The movie is directed by Mikio Naruse who would later become one of Japan's master directors, but there is little evidence of his future greatness here. The dialog is heavy handed and didactic and there is little depth, if any, to the characters. The movie is rare and hard to find, and really not much worth the effort of tracking down.
