Painter and poet Yumeji Takehisa (1884-1934) gets involved with a beautiful widow, becoming a rival of her dead husband's ghost and the jealous lover who murdered him.

Co-star Kenji Sawada's best-known roles include playing in Paul Schrader's biopic movie about Yukio Mishima, "Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters" and playing in Takashi Miike's horror-comedy musical "The Happiness of the Katakuris". Yoshio Harada, on the other hand, was a Suzuki regular and appeared in all three parts of the so-called Taisho trilogy.

Rarely seen in America, Arrow Video brings the title to Blu-ray along with the first two parts of the trilogy, and it looks simply fantastic. If only Seijun Suzuki had lived a few months longer, he could have appreciate the love and devotion given to his career.
