Japanese Movie Database lists 581 films released in Japan during 1960.[1] 547 feature films were released this year. Of those released by the five major studios, 239 were in color; 385 were gendai-geki, set in the modern era, and 162 were jidai-geki, set in historical times.[2] Film critic Tadao Satō names as significant Japanese releases of the year, Keisuke Kinoshita's The River Fuefuki and Kon Ichikawa's Her Brother. Kaneto Shindō's The Island was unusual for its lack of dialogue, and its remarkably low budget. After winning the Grand Prix at the Moscow Film Festival it served as a template for later independently-produced films. Nagisa Ōshima gained critical attention for himself and Shōchiku's other "New Wave" directors with Cruel Story of Youth and Night and Fog in Japan.[3]
