Always: Sunset on Third Street [Ōruweizu: San-chōme no Yūhi], was a Japanese film by Takashi Yamazaki based on a popular and long running manga by Ryōhei Saigan of the same name. This endearing, slice-of-life family drama set in post-war Tokyo was a huge hit both financially and critically and nearly swept through its native Academy Awards, winning 14 of 15 categories, making a sequel a no-brainer to the execs at Toho. Almost all of the cast and characters returned for Always: Sunset on Third Street 2, which also included this fantastic dream sequence:Greatest. Cameo. Ever.
