A Beautiful Wife's True Agenda
This film begins with an attractive woman by the name of "Ayako Takigawa" (Ayako Wakao) being enveloped by the press as she is led into a courtroom where she is charged with the murder of her husband "Ryokichi Takigawa" (Eitaro Ozawa). She subsequently pleads not guilty and the story of how she sent her husband tumbling down a steep mountain proceeds from there with certain witnesses called to testify and voice their concerns about her true agenda. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a pretty good drama which makes good use of the flashback technique to enhance the overall story. Likewise, having a beautiful actress like Ayako Wakao certainly didn't hurt the picture either. In any case, while there were some scenes that caused the film to drag in certain places, I thought that this was an interesting film for the most part and I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.
