Civil war stalks feudal Japan, but it isn’t enough to dissuade a poor potter (Masayuki Mori) from pursuing profit or a hapless farmer (Eitaro Ozawa) from pursuing martial glory. In Kenji Mizoguchi’s quasi- supernatural parable, their folly bears dire consequences. A sublime ghost story, and an always-relevant cautionary tale.
1953 Kenji Mizoguchi 1.33:1 B&W DCP 96 min. In Japanese with subtitles.
