Portrait of Madame Yuki Regie Kenji Mizoguchi


The stunning dénouement points to Ugetsu’s spectral realms: The dazed Yuki ambles into the wilderness until she stops at a café, the camera cranes down to follow the waiter as he gets her tea and then up again to find her chair now vacant. Mist creeps in, and it’s as if Murnau had never died.

Inevitability colors the film, an inevitability exactly in line with Mizo’s mise-en-scène: the trademark ‘diagonal’ tracking-shot that traces out the slash of a blade… For Mizoguchi never films discovery. Stabbed in the back unawares by a prostitute at 27 and from then on exploiting the cinema’s power to tell one’s secret by keeping silent, he is the filmmaker for whom the crescent moon and the razor became synonymous — accordingly, he films destiny, and adheres to its codes.
