お遊さま | Oyū-sama

Kenji Mizoguchi Japan, 1951

Espen Nomedal's rating of the film Frau Oyu

Despite the fact that the pale faces of brave heroines in Kenji Mizoguchi's films are memorable, they usually are smashed unrecognizable by brick walls of social formalities that at distance looks like green grass of home. So its no surprise that this musical love story with trees shot in backlight more gorgeous than National Geographic, splice parental guided marriage with suicidal tendency as a perfect matchmaker.
