Uta

Akio Jissoji Japan, 1972

Gylfi's rating of the film Poem

The english subtitles were in pretty bad shape which made it hard to follow the story. Thus, what became more important was following all the small details, like the masterful camera work, the music of Vivaldi in key scenes and the balance of shadows and light. I missed out on a lot of the conversations taking place so I would love to see the film again with more accomplished subtitles.
