The Lady of Musashino

Musashino fujin

Directed by Kenji Mizoguchi
Japan, 1951


The title character comes to grief when she falls in love with her cousin. In any other culture, this would constitute a betrayal, except that the woman’s husband is a flagrant philanderer. In the end, however, Lady Musashino is let down by both the men in her life.
