"Here is the old, old man, symbol of age and the wisdom it brings; and his grandson, the very spirit of youth with its loyalty, misgivings, and impetuousness.  Here is nature, angry and relentless, a tidal wave threatening to engulf the village.  As the dramatic story unfolds and we watch grandfather Ojiisan set fire to his rice fields, we have a wonderful realisation of the dignity of man and his ability to fight natural disaster with the fruits of nature itself."
