Popoya: Railroad Man

3 out of 5 stars

Director: Yasuo Furuhata

Hidetaka Yoshioka

Patriotic propaganda film. But tearwinning.

This film is about an honourable Japanese rail man's life, interwoven with some magical Japanese fairy tales re-interpreted into the story's frame. I give it three stars because I like the acting a lot.

The film in a whole, is very stereotypical, and old-fashioned. Good for being nostalgic. Both for the Japanese and those who share the memory of the influencial Japanese culture before 1980s.
