Ugetsu monogatari

Directed by Kenji Mizoguchi
Japan, 1953
Drama, Romance, Fantasy


“Quite simply one of the greatest of filmmakers,” said Jean-Luc Godard of Kenji Mizoguchi. And Ugetsu, a ghost story like no other, may be his definitive film: a story of two couples torn apart by war and ambition, in a land full of chaos and spirits.
