The Sakurada family is local wealthy family. The patriarchal grandfather still has strong power in the family after defeat in the war. Ceremonies, such as anniversaries, weddings or funerals, are a symbol of the spirit of the older generations. Members of the younger generation of the family must submit to cruelly enforced traditions. The anguish of the younger generations exactly reflects the times. The film is the director Oshima’s comprehensive masterpiece for 25 years after the end of World War Ⅱ.
