Widely regarded as Sadao Yamanaka's greatest achievement, this was, tragically, his last film. In the poor district of Tokugawa-era Tokyo, a poor samurai, Matajuro, spends his day looking for work, while his wife makes cheap paper balloons at home. When another poor soul abducts the daughter of a wealthy merchant and hides her at Matajuro's home, their lives change forever. In Japanese with English subtitles

Requires a multi-standard (PAL/NTSC) DVD player, or a region-free or region 2 compatible player with a multi-standard (PAL/NTSC) television.
