>Again, Roland comes in with the informative answer. I second his opinion

>Just to add a bit from a personal note:
>First, two of Kimura's prewar films are generally available in video in
>Japan: the 1933 Horoyoi jinsei, a wonderful example of early sound, P.C.L
>modernism, the relation between cinema and commerce (the film was
>sponsored by a beer company), and the "musical" genre; and the 1936 Ani
>imoto, which I think is a more interesting adaption of the Muro Saisei
>novel than Naruse's 1953 version.
>Second, given the Kimura family's collosal filial productivity, it is not
>suprising that some of Sotoji's siblings (not all with the same mother)
>also became famous. Kimura Sota was a novelist who was involved with
>Osugi Sakae, Tsuji Jun, and other anarchist modernists, and worked on
>creating an actual anarchist rural community in the model of Kropotkin.
>Kimura Akebono was an important early woman novelist. Kimura Shohachi was
>a famous Western style painter and illustrator. And Kimura Soju was a
>popular novelist who won the Naoki Prize in 1941. There are likely some
>more, but that's probably enough. It would be interesting just to
>investigate this family sometime.
