The Whole Family Works, Mikio Naruse's adaptation of a Sunao Tokunaga novel, feels more of a piece with the writer/director's quietly observant and psychologically charged later work. For the Naruse-familiar, it is an anomaly only in its placement within his filmography—indeed, this could be a film made by the elder, stasis-minded Naruse momentarily inhabiting, through a metaphysical twist of fate, his stylistically exuberant younger self. Set in depression-era Japan around the time of the Sino-Japanese War (which the director evokes, during a brief dream sequence, by dissolving between children's war games and actual adult warfare), The Whole Family Works gently observes a family coming apart at the seams. Ishimura (Musei Tokugawa) is the jobless father of nine children.
Father of nine children cannot find a job. Despite their aspirations, the children are encouraged by both parents to hold down menial jobs and contribute to the family expenses... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

I liked the new twist of having the main girl be a person in a wheelchair. The movie can drag on at times, but it's all worth it for the cool twist ending. This movie isn't as good as the original Child's Play trilogy, but close.

En revanche, l'execution est bien plus que decevante, tant le film est repetitif, tourne en rond et ne peut vraiment passionner 1h40 durant. Dommage, car le jeune VINCENT VALLADON et l'excellent EDDY MITCHELL y mettent de la bonne volonte.

Allan C (au) wrote: Childhood nostalgia blurs my ability to objectively rate this film, but when I saw this in the theater at 10 years old, I thought it was one of the best movies ever. I can now say it's not one of the greatest films of all time and is overlong by about 45 minutes, but I still enjoyed the film a great deal, particularly the cold war cloak-and-dagger potion of the film in Russia prior to Clint stealing the title plane halfway through the film. Solid direction by Eastwood and fine moody photography by Bruce Surtees.

Certaines rflexions y sont d'ailleurs tenues si violemment et si puissamment tout la fois qu'elle coupe parfois court toutes nos conventions tablies.Entre autre, lorsqu'Itard dcide de mettre l'preuve le sens de la justice de Victor...

The action scenes, especially the one in the disco, are stunning and amazingly filmed. In my opinion the finale settles things down as expected but leaves something to be desirable, maybe Cruise himself does not act his character's death convincingly.
