Interesting Mizoguchi's Film
20 September 2011 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Yuki, the main character in this film, is married to Naoyuki Shinano, who often mistreats her and humiliates her. She doesn't love him though, she secretly loves Koto, a friend who recommends her to abandon her husband. But she can't abandon him because in her inner self, she enjoys being with him, and finds really difficult to think of leaving him.

Here you'll find every usual aspect from a Mizoguchi film, although compared to his other films, this one would fit in his minor efforts.

The amazing camera shots are worth watching here. If by any chance you find this film boring, you should at least watch the final scene, there are some really good scenarios over there that are amazingly shot.

From the acting you cant't expect less, it is usually good in this kind of Japanese films.

So, if you are a Mizoguchi fan, you'll like this movie, or at least you'll find it interesting, just as I did.
