1.1. History. At the beginning of the era of silent films. (В начале эпохи немого кино)
The kinetoscope, first shown at the sale of Thomas Edison in the United States in 1894, was first shown in Japan in November 1896. In Vitascope and the cinématographe lumière was first introduced in Japan in early 1897, businessmen such as Inabata katsutaro hotel. Lumière cameramen were the first to shoot films in Japan. Moving pictures, however, was not a completely new experience for the Japanese because of their rich tradition of pre-cinematic devices such as gentō utsushi-E or Magic lantern. The first successful Japanese film in late 1897 showed sights in Tokyo.
In 1898 some kind of Ghost films were made, the person ceases Asano shorts to bake Jizo the Ghost / 化け地蔵 and Shinin St resurrection of the dead. First documentary, short geisha no teodori 芸者の手踊り, was made in June 1899. Sinking Shibata made a number of early films, including Momijigari, 1899 record of two famous actors performing a scene from the famous Kabuki play. Early films were influenced by traditional theater – for example, Kabuki and Bunraku.
At the dawn of the twentieth century theaters in Japan hired benshi, storytellers who sat next to the screen and gave a silent movie. They were descendants of Kabuki jōruri, kōdan storytellers, theater barkers and other forms of oral narrative. Benshi could be accompanied by music like silent films from cinema of the West. With the advent of sound in the early 1930-ies benshi gradually decreases.
In 1908, Shōzō Makino, considered to be the pioneering Director of Japanese film, began his impressive career with 本能寺合戦 Honnōji Gassen, made for Yokota Shōkai. Shōzō did Matsunosuke Onoe, a former actor in his productions. Onoe became Japans first film Star, appearing in over 1.000 films, mostly shorts, between 1909 and 1926. The pair pioneered the jidaigeki genre. Tokihiko Okada was a popular romantic hero of the same era.
The first Japanese production Studio was built in 1909 Shōten company Yoshizawa in Tokyo.
The first female Japanese performer to appear in a film professionally was the dancer / actress Tokuko Nagai Takagi, who appeared in four shorts for the American Thanhouser company between 1911 and 1914.
Among intellectuals, criticism of Japanese cinema grew in the 1910s, and eventually developed into a movement that transformed the Japanese film. Film criticism began with early films magazines such as Katsudō shashinkai began in 1909 and a full-length book written by Yasunosuke Gonda in 1914, but many critics often focused on blaming the work of the film Studio Nikkatsu and Tenkatsu for being too theatrical and not using what other cinematic techniques to tell stories, instead relying on benshi. In what was later called the net movement of the film, the authors in magazines such as kinema record called for a broader use of such cinematic techniques. Some of these critics such as Kaeriyama Norimasa, went on to put their ideas into practice, directing such films as the Radiance of life in 1918, which was one of the first films to use the actress in this case, Harumi Hanayagi. There were parallel efforts elsewhere in the industry. In the film 1917 captains daughter, Masao Inoue began to use new techniques of the silent film era, such as close-up and cut. Net movement of the film was Central in the development of the gendaigeki and writers.
1.2. History. 1920-ies. (1920-х годов)
The new Studio created around 1920, such as Shochiku and Taikatsu, helped the cause for reform. At Taikatsu, Thomas Kurihara directed films script writer Junichiro Tanizaki, who was a strong supporter of reform of the film. Even Nikkatsu produced reformist films under the direction of Eizō Tanaka. By the middle of 1920-ies, Actresses had replaced onnagata and films used more devices, developed by Inoue. Some of the most talked about films from Japan is Kenji Mizoguchi, whose later works, including Other / Other Monogatari retain a very high reputation.
Japanese films gained popularity in the mid-1920s against foreign films, in particular, fueled by the popularity of movie stars and new style of jidaigeki. Directors such as Daisuke itō and Masahiro Makino made the film as a Diary of travels and Roningai Chujis with rebellious antiheroes in fast-cut fight scenes that were both critically acclaimed and a commercial success. Some stars, such as Tsumasaburo Bando, Kanjūrō Arashi, Chiezō Kataoka, Takako Irie and Utaemon Ichikawa, were inspired by Makino film productions and formed their own independent production companies where Directors such as Hiroshi Inagaki, Mansaku Itami and Sadao Yamanaka honed their skills. Director Teinosuke Kinugasa created a production enterprise for the production of experimental masterpiece a page of madness, starring Masao Inoue, in 1926. Many of these companies, while surviving during the silent era against major studios like Nikkatsu, Shochiku, Teikine, and Toa studios, could not survive the associated costs of conversion to sound.
With the rise of leftist political movements and trade unions in the late 1920-ies, there was the so-called tendency films with left-wing tendencies. Directors Kenji Mizoguchi, Daisuke itō, Shigeyoshi Suzuki, and tomu Uchida were striking examples. In contrast with these commercially produced 35 mm films, the Marxist Proletarian film League of Japans PROKINO made works independently in smaller scale, for example, 9.5 mm and 16 mm, with more radical intentions. Tendency films suffered from severe censorship heading into the 1930s, and PROKINO members were arrested and the movement effectively crushed. Such government actions have a significant impact on the expression of political dissent in the movies of the 1930-ies. The films of this period include: Sakanaya Honda, Jitsuroku Chushingura, Horaijima, Orochi, Maboroshi, Kurutta Ippeji, Jujiro, Kurama tengu: Kyōfu Jidai, and Kurama tengu.
Later captains daughter was one of the first radio station movies. He used a system Mine radios. The Japanese film industry was later divided into two groups, one of which retained the Mina talkie system, while others used Iisutofyon Talkie system is used to make Tojo Masakis movies.

There were a few Japanese sound shorts made in the 1920-ies and 1930-ies, but the first full-length Japan walkie talkie was Fujiwara Yoshie no Furusato 1930, which is used by the system is a Mine radio.

Film critics shared this resistance, with many of the film magazines such as Kinema Junpo and Newspapers printing detailed discussion of the cinema in the day, both at home and abroad. Cultural "impressionistic" criticism, pursued by critics such as Tadashi Iijima, Fuyuhiko Kitagawa, and Matsuo Kishi was dominant, but opposed by leftist critics such as Akira Iwasaki and Genjū of the SAS who were looking for ideological criticism of the films.
