Yuki, the main hero in this film, is married to Naoyuki Shinano, who often mistreats her and humiliates her. She doesn't love him though, she secretly loves Koto, a mate who recommends her to abandon her husband. But she can't abandon him because in her inner self, she enjoys being with him, and finds really hard to think of leaving him.Here you'll search each usual aspect from a Mizoguchi film, although compared to his another films, this one would fit in his minor efforts.The nice camera shots are worth watching here. If by any possibility you search this movie boring, you could at least watch the final scene, there are some really nice scenarios over there that are amazingly shot.From the acting you cant't expect less, it is usually nice in this type of Japanese films.So, if you are a Mizoguchi fan, you'll like this movie, or at least you'll search it interesting, just as I did.
I would tell as the another reviewers that there is some pretty landscapes in this movie, but I would tell entertainment value is not very high at least for me.The film is about a girl of noble blood that have an abusive husband that humiliates her all the time. The premise of the film is also built on she could love a melody professor. Trouble is just that none of her actions or words ever present any feelings at all for the professor. only his deep love for her shows in the movie.So you sit the entire film waiting for what will happen if she finally will pull her act together and divorce her husband or what will happen. And not much does really happen as she just continue to allow her husband humiliate her more and more until the end that I will not reveal.But I think there have been made many much better films about suppressed girls both in Japan and another territories already in 1950. You can select better unless suppressed girls films are your type of movie.
