| Setsuko Hara as femme
Not the greatest little film in the world, but well worth seeking out if you're - like me - in love with Setsuko Hara. I don't think I've seen her as sexualised as in this film, with make-up, western garb and smoking cigarettes. She's s good girl gone bad, maybe comparable to Claire Trevor is Key Largo. In fact, the latter film has a lot in common with this - not only was it made in the same year, but both are about a bunch of gangsters stuck in a house during a storm. Basically she's the opposite of the 'saint' she often played in Ozu movies, and she looks stunning.
