DirectorCast

Kurosawa Kiyoshi Aoi Yu, Takahashi Issey, Higashide Masahiro

Japan / 2020 / Japanese / 115 minutes / DCP / Color

With an air of tension and suspense familiar in his oeuvre, Kurosawa Kiyoshi’s first period picture takes an excursion into wartime espionage that lays bare historical atrocities. Unfolding as a young wife discovers her husband’s intent to reveal Imperial Japan’s dirty secrets, the plot leads into a penetrating study of love, trust and ideology in nourished silhouettes. Elegant and absorbing, the gripping drama offers an unflinching gaze at savage horror, and a revelation of the diversity of the genre veteran, who won best director at Venice.
