The Most Beautiful (一番美しく Ichiban utsukushiku?, aka Most Beautifully[dubious discuss]) is a 1944 Japanese propaganda drama film written and directed by Akira Kurosawa.
The film is set in an optics factory during the Second World War.

The film depicts the struggle for the workers at a lens factory to meet production targets during World War II. They continually drive themselves, both singly and as a group, to exceed the targets set for them by the factory directors.

During World War II, the management of a war industry of optical instruments for weapons requests an effort from the workers to increase the productivity during four months. The target for male workers is an increase of 100% of the production, but the female workers, led by the dedicated Tsuru Watanabe, ask the direction to surpass their goal from 50% to 70%. During the period, the women have to overcome illness and their personal problems to complete their quota.
