Fumio Kamei – Ikiteite yokatta AKA It Is Good to Live (1956)

From Amos Vogel’s Film as a Subversive Art:

In a succession of realistic, shocking sequences, their lives, difficulties, and camaraderie are examined. The very objectivity of incidents, scenes, and faces makes the film the more terrifying.
