  5. John Baldwin's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

    Sublime, with a brilliant Kyoko Kagawa.

  6. Vasco Bação's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

    As Dave Kehr said, a sublime, perfectly modulated film, even though, as Benard da Costa said, it goes from commedia dell'arte to Tristan and Isolde. That apparent conceptual imbalance disappears thanks to Mizoguchi's mastery of space, camera, acting and editing. Despite a constantly eventful story and its epic scope of human nature and relations, the film remains a simple, focused, quietly beautiful, perfect piece.

  7. Nuno Ramalho's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

    It could have ended at the first crucifixion frame at minute 10 or 12 or wtvr BUT THANK GOD IT DIDN'T

  8. Aardsy's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

    D'une beauté formelle éblouissante, une oeuvre parfaite et rare, tant pour son esthétisme raffiné, magistralement épurée, que pour son profond humanisme entre désespérant fatum inexorable, barbare oppression sociale et déchirante passion (im)mortelle. Une réalisation hautement incontournable ! www.cinefiches.com

  15. lIZUKA's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

    The powerful emotion of love subverts traditional values, class distinctions and roles. Although tragedy is the consequence, it is a kind of triumph for the lovers who in the end are paired.That was wonderful!

  16. Renton47's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

    Mizoguchi's classical tale of morality and love is replete with all the suffering we expect from him. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, and the noble are frequently exploited at the hands of the rich and cowardly. His humanity as a director doesn't especially extend to the villains of the piece, but here we see the heroes are not entirely their victims either. Gorgeous cinematography.

  17. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

    Kenji is allergic to closeups but he likes melodramas.

  18. ikkini's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

    Si ton petit cœur n'est pas de pierre, tu vas fondre comme une glace à l'eau en plein été devant cette belle tragédie.

  19. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

  20. Communicants's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

  21. Marc St-Cyr (Death cinéphilia)'s rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

  22. Ostermyers's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

  23. tibber's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

    So apparently, Mizoguchi wasn't even really trying when he made this. That's kind of humbling if you're an aspiring filmmaker, isn't it?

  24. Bjanicas's rating of the film The Crucified Lovers

    Still echoing that title from Verlaine's poem: "L'amour par terre".
