Drunken Angel - Yoidore tenshi (Kurosawa, 1948)

A doctor tries to save a gangster from dying of leukemia and being eaten up by his yakuza surroundings.

A very nice story, especially the transformation of the gangster which is continuous throughout the film is rather believable because it comes in chunks of which some seem to be very erratic. Also the doctor is visibly pulled apart by his empathy and distrust at the same time for the young man.
