The Scarlet Camellia
27 September 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

 When the number of bodies each adorned with a scarlet camellia start to mount, the authorities are keen to quickly find the murderer and solve the case.  The deaths are obviously all related as each male victim has been slayed by the exact same method. As the investigation proceeds and suspicions begin to narrow, the detective looking into the deaths overlooks a main suspect, Oshino, for she is so outwardly sweet and innocent, he seems to be bewitched by her alluring beauty... Director Yoshitarô Nomura's film is a spellbinding psychological thriller, a dark epic odyssey of revenge.  Based on a novel of the same name by the distinguished Japanese author Shûgorô Yamamoto, the compelling drama/crime story is set in the 19th century. However  the subject of the investigation and the focus story are well beyond a simplistic crime drama. Typical of the great director his film is a multi faceted work, Nomura weaves throughout insightful observations on the times, on the society and the social order in which the crime was committed. It is stylishly crafted with outstanding performances. Absorbed by the epic scope of The Scarlet Camellia this excellent film is captivating entertainment ... Highly Recommended
