Trivia

Director Teinosuke Kinugasa had so little money to make this film, that his stars - some of them rather big names - had to help paint sets, push the dolly and make props. He had only eight small lights to work with, so he painted the walls of his small studio silver to make them reflect additional illumination. See more »

A vision in delirium
8 February 1999 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This very strange movie is unlike anything made in the west at the time. With its tumultuous emotions and net of visions, dreams, and startling images, its effect is both beautiful and unsettling. The actors are choreographed more like dance than acting. It contains the only dream sequence I know of that actually resembles a real nightmare (sorry, Dali fans).
