祇園の姉妹 | Gion no shimai

Kenji Mizoguchi Japan, 1936

Dave's rating of the film Die Schwestern von Gion

My second Mizoguchi pre-war, and while I prefer Osaka Elegy, this was another gem. The gracefulness of the camera movement and camera placement are as perfect as one would expect from Mizoguchi. A gorgeous looking film.
