| A real oddity
Ganjirô Nakamura is getting older and feels his sexual potency slipping away. He seeks the advice of doctor Tatsuya Nakadai, his daughter's boy friend. Rather than follow his medical advice, he pushes Nakadai towards his own wife since the jealousy makes him feel young and potent. This really odd little film sets up a love quadrangle and ends tragically, as expected, but with none of the consequences being quite what you'd expect. Not among Kon Ichikawa's best, but a real perverse oddity in his catalog.
