Enjoyable mid-60s Japanese film
21 October 2017 | by marloweisdeadSee all my reviews

Natsuo and his friends have graduated high-school and are about to take the next step in their lives. Natsuo longs to go to Hawaii to find his paternal grandfather, who has been estranged with Natsuo's mother since she and his son eloped from Hawaii near the end of World War II, leading to Natsuo's father enlisting in the army and dying near the end of the war, a death Natsuo's grandfather blames on his mother, causing him to refuse to recognise her as his daughter-in-law.

Despite this grim-looking outline, Yum no Hawaii de bon odori is a charming mid-60s Japanese film, focusing on Natsuo and his group friends; including a cute blossoming romance between Natsuo and his friend Miyoko, who comes from a slightly higher class than he; and on Natsuo's relationship with his hard-working single mother who fears her son's leaving her for Hawaii.
