Yuzo and his fiancée Masako spend their Sunday afternoon together, trying to have a good time on just thirty-five yen. They manage to have many small adventures, especially because Masako's optimism and belief in dreams is able to lift Yuzo from his realistic despair.


Signs of a budding genius directo ONE WONDERFUL SUNDAY (1947) has a simple little plot.A young Tokyo couple have almost no money to spend on their only day available for a date.It isn't long until the money is gone, as well as the young man's spirit. The ending is uncomfortably corny, you will squirm in your seat.There is signs of Akira Kurosawa becoming a great director.He makes us pay attention to the decreasing amount of money (much like he made us pay attention to the number of slain bandits in SEVEN SAMURAI, and his stab at Frank Capra style humor is pretty good.A must see for the student of this great director.
