Overview

In the seventeenth century. Set in a small village, nestled between the sea and the mountain, the father of Alan, a fifteen-year-old boy, has sold himself for two years to indentured service. Alan is forced to take the place of his father and struggles to support his family.

Review

The film takes place in a small village in the 17th century. Only a few fishers live in the isolated village surrounded by the sea and the mountains, catching barely enough fish to live on. Stricken by poverty and hunger, they secretly wait for a shipwreck. Alan’s family is no exception. Alan lives with his parents and two younger siblings. His father sells himself as an indentured servant to an Arab merchant, leaving the flour he received as compensation. The fifteen-year-old becomes the man of the house, struggling to support the family. However, it seems extremely difficult for Alan, who is too young and too small for his age.
The story is adapted from the novel Shipwrecks by Yoshimura Akira, an author of On Parole, which is adapted into a film, The Eel by director Imamura Shohei. Fires in the Dark is the second film by French director Lienhard Dominique. It realistically describes the hard life in a small village by the sea, where the villagers are right on the verge of misery. (CHUN Jinsu)
