Japanese Movie Database lists 552 films released in Japan during 1956.[1] There were 514 feature films this year. Of the features released by the five major studios, 32 were in color; 345 were gendai-geki, set in the modern era, and 169 were jidai-geki, set in historical times.[2] Film critic Tadao Satō names as significant Japanese releases of the year, Ichiwaka's Harp of Burma and Imai's Darkness at Noon, which took up the previously taboo theme of criticism of the nation's courts. The new "Sun tribe" genre surpassed romantic melodramas as Japan's most popular film genre this year.[3]
