Original unread.

Works that receive an impression that is paired with "Rashomon" as a work depicting "human work and duality" because Mr. Kazu Machiko has appeared.
"Rashomon" is a character-based entity, although this work is a story subject, Princess Prince Wakasa's distinctive presence is outstanding.
In this period Kazuko Machiko feels the classic beauty unique to a period drama whose hair color is different from the current beauty actress.

Indeed, although Wakasa does not appear, a story is established where Genrou who has forgotten his loving wife regains herself and returns to his hometown.
However, it was impressive that the ghost of the ghost produces exquisite contrast with the Miyaki that greets her husband as a soul only and complement the finish of the ending. "Very good" than "good".

"Emptiness of desire". I guess this was the theme of this movie.

A man of poor farming who took advantage of the battle of Mt.Game for his career as a successor,
Temporarily definitely became General Tadashi Genki I was floating a faceless expression It was stupid enough to say that the guts looked like it was human smell and it was easy to understand.

It was always the weakest in the war, and in this work, Ahama was in such a position, but it was a painful thing that it was painful as a woman who was violently raped by soldiers, a prostitute There was. It was salvation that the protagonist, Genrouro asked for forgiveness.
After all, such a succession was also a source of fun but Genku returned, too,
It seems that there was still hope at all as long as I was alive.

The level of the acting team was also quite expensive. The latter that was energetic and greasy in a good way, Mr. Masayuki Mori, Mr. Makiko Kyo who was well suited to the elegant atmosphere had been showing off his success suitable for his achievements in the film history.

Late late Mr. Kenji Mizoguchi does not like human nature, but it was probably one of the oldest (?) Classic representative film. Evaluation is "good" on the "very good" side.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Kenji Mizoguchi If it was not only a fan but also a movie fan, it is one of the masts I want to hold down absolutely. Next to Ozu Yasujiro's "Tokyo story", it will be one of the most highly rated in the world. Kazu Machizuki obviously all of the actors including Masayuki Tanaka and Masayuki Tanaka are also prestigious, all of Miyagawa's camera work and Mr. Mizoguchi directing are shining. After all, if you let her take a woman, it is a very unique director, along with Ozu Anjiro.

If it says a story, it is simple and reproduces things like "The flavor of ordinary life" ... but this work has made it a name cast and a name photographer to make it a creepy, yet ecstatic but interesting image production. In particular Wakasa who plays Katakiri Machi acted like a similar character, it was more daring than the formal "Rashomon" and had plenty of sex appeal. Because it is a sadistic Mizoguchi director, it is vulgar if it says vulgarity, but it is still a terrible acting skill.

Although it is a suspense, it will be an excellent work that has never run in the direction of horror or crazy, keeping an exquisite balance on the off-limits route. The time is short, but there are also gold rigidly in it, and the image is beautiful than anything else. This one is definitely worth more than seeing 10 recent Japanese movies. The final evaluation is of course "highest".

From the original work by Akunari Ueda "Rainy moon monogatari" "Movie made based on" Serpent noodles "and" Asakayado ".
She has won the Silver Lion Awards and the Italian Critics Award at the Venice International Film Festival.
As a representative of Mizoguchi's work, although it is a highly evaluated work globally, I can actually sense the high degree of its completion. Especially the picture taken by Kazuo Miyagawa captures the world view firmly and tells the story more than words. On the mansion where Wakasa (Kyo Machiko) and old women right Kiku (Mohri chrysanthemum) are located, they use the dark black and candle lights to pull their magic. And the image unique to black and white gives further depth. Especially the facial expression of pleasure of Wakasa and expressions filled with grudge are transmitted terribly to the woman's passion like Noh mask.
The story itself is based on "Asakaya inn" as a base and "snake nectar" is mixed without difficulty. Actually there have been a lot of video works that have been adaptively based on "Asakaya", but this work is old enough to bear an orchestra, yet it is well woven together. The shallowness of a man who loses sight of his precious things in money, honor and love and the sorrow of a woman who is a sacrifice are universal themes that can continue to draw forever and exist without fading.
The sequence that Genjiro (Masayuki Mori) returned to Miyagi (Tanaka Kikiyo) shows that the Miyaki is already dead to the viewer with a fantastic image. Instead of seeing the ending of the shock, it will tell the anomaly of the world underlying the story firmly.

Director Kenji Mizoguchi. Starring is Machiko Kyo, Masayuki Mori.
Two pieces Asakaya in the rainy moon tale drafted a suit and a serpentine lodge.
Is it because the foolishness of human desires is universal regardless of the times, what can modern people understand as well?
Although it can be a little evaluation of this work, I think that a story with a surprise like Six sense is never created from nothing when seeing such a talk style. Conversely, it seems that many classical works contain many things that serve as starting points for creating new works.
A piece of Japanese-style classic works that got a silver lion award in Venice. It is a work that I want you to see by all means.
