"Japani, 1600-luku. Vanha ilotyttö on vetäytynyt buddhalaiseen pyhättöön rukoilemaan. Pyhimysten kuvat tuovat tälle kuitenkin mieleen elämän aikana kohtaamansa miehet sekä elämän, jonka tämä on jo kauan aikaa sitten jättänyt taakseen... Nuoruudessaan Oharu oli rikkaan ja kuuluisan suvun jäsen, mutta rakastuttuaan väärään mieheen (Toshiro Mifune!) perhe menetti kasvonsa ja karkotettiin keisarillisesta pääkaupungista. Oharu - naisen tie on tarinana kuin Jobin kirja, kertomus "

"January 29th Directed by: Kenji Mizoguchi Yasujiro Ozu and Kenji Mizoguchi I would think are the two most prolific filmmakers whose most common theme is the plight of women. Now, Ozu would always take the modern approach and Mizoguchi was more of a fan of what I assume to be Edo period. I mention Ozu because I find it really interesting that so much of Japanese cinema was dominated by stories of women and the hurdles of their time, be it the 1960s or the 1600s. I don't bat an eye at this, I ha"

"27.2. (Teatteri/35 mm) Välistä turhan yltiödramaattiseksi menevä elokuva, joka kuvaa mainiosti 1600-luvun japanilaista(kin) luokkayhteiskuntaa, jonka alimmalla portaalla nainen tuntuu istuvan. Samaan aikaan, kun päähän potkittu kauniimman sukupuolen edustaja ajetaan koko ajan ahtaammalle ja nähdään pelkkänä miehisen hyväksikäytön objektina, tältä kuitenkin vaaditaan osallisuutta yhteen maailman tekopyhimmistä kunniakäsityksistä, joita rikkova vajoaa jo alas vedettyä ulostet"
