  1. Samuel T.'s rating of the film As a Wife, As a Woman

    Agonizing, again. Naruse. (4.5)

  2. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film As a Wife, As a Woman

    Right up there with the great autumnal masterpieces of Naruse: Takamine Hideko at her most mournful and desolate, elegant color 'scope photography, the characters all hitting the wall that Naruse once claimed his characters are doomed to hit. At the end of the picture everything's smashed to bits. The kids cry foul, say that all adults are liars and cowards. One assumes they express the director's own view.

  3. joey Noodles's rating of the film As a Wife, As a Woman

    Bitter, sour, emotionally brutal and bitingly sharp, this is one of Naruse's finest works. 5/5
