| Mizoguchi does not disappoint in this one
A quite different Mizoguchi film we have right here, but it entertained me all the way through and the cinematography is top-notch; the camera-work and scenes are outstanding as usual. The film starts slow and takes a while to unfold, but once the story is unfolded and everything is cleared up, it hooked me. The only thing lacking might be the ending, which leaves things quite incomplete and it kind of left me wanting for more, but I believe it was intended to end in this manner. Perhaps they were planning to produce a sequel or something of the sort, although I am not anywhere sure about it, so do not take my opinion for granted.

All I can say is that this film is worth watching; it will not disappoint any Mizoguchi fan.
