(OK) Wonderfull Mizoguchi, before war he was in full domanin of his style and themes. La love of Otaku has everything, is even intellectual; and Kikunosuke reciprocates in his own selfish way. Great composition and following of characters, and momentos of kabuki...

Kielletty rakkaus alempiarvoiseen naiseen kuitenkin tekee hallaa suvun kunnialle, joten pojan on katkaistava suhteet perheeseensä. Sitten hän ei olekaan enää niin kova sana näyttelijämarkkinoilla, koska ne taidot eivät kehity mihinkään. Miehelle aiheutuu ongelmia valinnoistaan, mutta patriarkaalisessa yhteiskunnassa en"
