Sadako (Masumi Harukawa), cursed by generations before her and neglected by her common-law husband, falls prey to a brutal home intruder. As a result, rather than become a victim, she forges a path to her own awakening. Intentions of Murder is gripping and audacious.

I can't believe I haven't discovered this film earlier or this director. I love its combination of a documentary style with a dreamlike expressionism. I think this is one of the most beautiful black & white films I have seen of the 60's.
Sólo por el maravilloso plano secuencia en que el acosador persigue a Sadako, ya merece una buena puntuación. Aunque redunda un poco hacia el final, la película es toda una colección de planos e imágenes de una belleza extraordinaria.
