Kenji Mizoguchi's one of the best works
8 June 2002 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

As a part of trilogy "Fighting Women" this movie is the best, I feel. Mizoguchi capture's person's heart with a cool and objective view, taking person closer to Japanese society and living. Mizoguchi's favorite actress Kinuyo Tanaka performs great as a strong minded Japanese female lawyer. "With the death of Mizoguchi, Japanese film lost its truest creator." -- Akira Kurosawa
