    A true gem of cinema. Masterful actings. Concrete story with great depth that leaves plenty of room for analysis and discussions. 6 years 8 months ago

    Quite simply one of the most profound films I've ever seen. A true masterpiece worthy of just about every accolade one could give it.

    Masahiro Shinoda: "Mizoguchi was a supreme realist while also being a supreme fantasist. He appears before us as an extremely ambivalent figure..."

    Andrei Tarkovsky on Kenji Mizoguchi: "One of the "exalted figures who soar above the earth... such an artist can convey the lines of the poetic design of being. He is capable of going beyond the limitations of coherent logic, and conveying the deep complexity and truth of the impalpable connections and hidden phenomena of life."

    I was surprised by how good this movies was. I didn't expect much when I started watching it, but it was really well put together. I quickly forgot about the fact that it was 60 years old and in black/white. I can definitely recommend it! 4 years 1 month ago
