  根據深澤七郎的小說改編,故事發生在日本信州一個小山村,那裡因貧困而沿襲了一個傳統,就是老人一到70歲不論健康與否,都要被子女送上山等死。有著一身硬朗身體的亞玲婆(板本澄子飾),不願成為兒的負擔,在安頓好家裡的事,便百船折磨自己的身體,好讓兒子安心送她上路。最後由長子辰平(緒形拳飾),在皚皚雪中背上山。觀眾看到死亡的同時,也看到生命的讚歌。

  In a small village everyone who reaches the age of 70 must leave the village and go to a certain mountaintop to die. If anyone should refuse he/she would disgrace his/her family. Old Orin is 69. This winter it is her turn to go to the mountain. But first she must make sure that her eldest son Tatsuhei finds a wife.

Beautiful, brutal folk tale Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
"The Ballad of Narayama" is a primal, earthy tale of a family's elderly matriarch putting her house in order before it is her time to climb Mount Nara and depart this world. Director Imamura Shohei effectively combines spectacular cinematography of a gorgeous landscape with this sometimes brutal story of a primitive people.

The performances by Director Imamura's typical stable of actors are superb. The actors, particularly Ogata Ken, must have put up with some real physical hardships in the production of this film.

What gives this remarkable film its resonance is the recognition of the similarities between the actions of these crude and violent people and the more sophisticated behaviors we find in our own lives. "The Ballad of Narayama" is a great film and I recommend it highly for a mature audience.
