  遠在天涯、心在咫尺!
  一條黃手絹;飄送萬般情!
  「庶民劇」電影大師山田洋次創作生涯最高峰感人傑作!

  《幸福黃手絹》是日本「庶民劇」電影大師山田洋次最為人津津樂道的名作之一。影片改編自旅日美國作家彼得‧咸米爾的公路小說,描寫一名殺人犯釋囚與一直在遠方守候著他的妻子的愛情故事,當中加插了一對鬥氣冤家似的現代年輕男女,從而帶出愛情的真諦,幽默輕鬆的調子,與化不開的中年愁緒互相叫替,叫人看得悲喜交集;末段刻劃男主角未知妻子是否已經改嫁的一大段心理描寫,更充滿著彷若希治閣式的懸疑味道,堪稱「雅俗共賞」的典範。

  影片的四名主角:男人味滿瀉的高倉健、賢淑溫柔的倍賞千惠子、「我很醜但我很搞笑」的武田鐵矢、和剛出道但已野性撩人的桃井薰,均有出色表現。

  Another heartwarming gem from the creator of the Tora-san series, Yamada Yoji. This time round, the story of an ex-murderer on parole trying to make his way home to Hokkaido to meet his wife is handled with poignancy and great sensitivity. Adapted from a short story by the American novelist Peter Hamill, the film was both a huge hit in Japan and a critical success. Unashamedly sentimental, this tragic-comedy represents Yamada at the peak of his creative ability.

  It also features remarkable performances from every member of its cast: the stoic and Humphrey-Bogart-like Takakura Ken, the benevolent Baisho Chieko (Tora-san's young sister), the irresistibly funny Takeda Tetsuya and the untamable Momoi Karoi. In short: this is one film you cannot afford to miss!

Another fine Yamada Yoji film Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
"The Yellow Handkerchief" tells of an unlikely trio of travel companions on a journey across Hokkaido. Takeda Tetsuya plays a frenetic, voluble young man who, after getting dumped by his girlfriend, quits his job, gets in his new car, and heads north. Momoi Karoi plays a young woman who gets shoved around at work, so seeks a vacation respite. Takakura Ken plays a mysterious traveler, whose background I will leave unrevealed.

Through the interaction of these diverse personalities, we see the characters grow and change and develop a true affection for each other. No one is better at pulling off heartwarming stories like this than director Yamada Yoji and he does it again here. The film is funny, touching, and even romantic. I recommend it highly.

By the way, the YesAsia website's description of the film is inaccurate; this DVD actually does have English subtitles.
