Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tracing the development of the Japanese cinema from 1896 (when the first Kinetoscope was imported) through the golden ages of film in Japan up to today, this work reveals the once flourishing film industry and the continuing unique art of the Japanese film. Now back in print with updated sections, major revaluations, a comprehensive international bibliography, and an exceptional collection of 168 stills ranging over eight decades, this book remains the unchallenged reference for all who seek a broad understanding of the aesthetic, historical, and economic elements of motion pictures from Japan.

Synopsis:

"The definitive study in any Western language of the Japanese cinema. The Anderson-Richie book has classic status."--David Bordwell, University of Wisconsin at Madison
