KENJI MIZOGUCHI

Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BBBBJapan, 1956.  Screenplay by , based on the novel by Susaki No Onna by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by .  Production Design by , .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

Kenji Mizoguchi directed this story of a group of women living and working in a brothel.   is excellent as a spirited young girl who searches for great love and passion in her work, while many of the others are there for less exciting reasons. Some have no other way of supporting their families, while others have no other way of supporting themselves. As usual with a Mizoguchi film, the photography and editing are excellent.
