DirectorCast

Kawashima YuzoWakao Ayako/Mishima Masao/Kimura Isao

Japan / 1962 / Japanese / 98 minutes / DCP

Kawashima Yuzo’s (36th) adaptation of Minakami Tsutomu’s semiautobiography exemplifies his aesthetics of discordance. In a tale of an uneasy tripartite relationship among an abbot, his mistress, and his disciple, all living in the temple famous for its painting of wild geese, Kawashima exposes both love and power entanglements and the corrupt heart of Japan; the gravity of Murai Hiroshi’s exquisite cinematography embodies these psychological tensions, spirituality and restrained artistry.
