Four minutes short of two hours, this was a film which made me despise the modern technology used in cinematography. Watch this film to see how the great screenplay, outstanding acting and potential for a masterpiece can be ruined by choosing something you are not fully familiar with, like electronic cameras! Kiyoshi Kurosawa agreed to make a movie on a limited TV broadcaster budget, so that was what we got! A colourless and dull looking cinematography which came half way for everything!
A part of the Japanese history not often visited by the Japanese filmmakers was just touched and never fully explored, slowly dissolving into a personal drama of trust and betrayal...
If you like dull colours, reserved directing, no outdoor scenes and very dark indoor rooms, some agony with few tears, no sex and maybe a kiss, bad acting from foreigners and excellent acting from Yû Aoi and Issey , sit down and prepare your snacks and drinks!
