 Keisuke Kinoshita's Twenty-Four Eyes (Nijushi no hitomi) is an elegant, emotional chronicle of a teacher s unwavering commitment to her students, her profession, and her sense of morality.

Though little known in the United States, Twenty-Four Eyes is one of Japan's most popular and enduring classics.
