A French member gave me this link:

It's a Japanese blogger and he seems to make a personal ranking of them (with letters and colors). Maybe some additional informations there.

That's an interesting thought. I know France had those limitations, which is why Les Enfants du Paradis is in two parts.

Please don't hurt yourself, talk to someone.

It's possible to see at least 219 of the films with English subtitles leaving 86 without English subtitles.

Yeah it would be interesting to see Sato's list added to ICM. He is one of the more respected critics, I really liked his book about Mizoguchi, and his SS top is really good.

Where is the KineJun list available? I did not see it on ICM.

Porco Rosso 0 points (Miyazaki Hayao) anger (not shown)
→ "can not fly pig is just a pig of" point of anger. Speak but would not be just a pig at the time. Thereafter, Hayao Miyazaki is to hate is not watching.
That's great. Also, what are the other 2 of the Top 10 from the book that blogger doesn't list?

I've got:
The Million Ryo Pot (1935)
The Rickshaw Man (1958)
The Water Magician (1933)
Ohara Shosuke-san (1949)
Jujiro (1928)
Late Chrysanthemums (1954)
Onna keizu (1942) by Masahiro Makino a film and director I've never heard of.

aaand that's only 7. He says there's 8 there. :/

I think it's the blogger's own top10. It means that 3 films of his top10 are not in the Sato's 100. Here is his complete top 10:
http://danzai449.blog19.fc2.com/blog-entry-2590.html
At 10 he has Naruse's Flunky, Work Hard, for instance.

Is there some 'tops' in the book? Or is it just ranked by directors orthographically?

I've only seen 30, but that includes 18 favorites.

Maybe I should watch some more Japanese cinema. :think:

Corrections:

夫婦善哉/豊田四郎
Meoto zenzai (1955) instead of Bokutô kitan (1960)

兄とその妹/島津保次郎
Ani to sono imoto (1939) instead of Ani to sono imouto (1956) -not at icheckmovies-
