Much like the first film in the Taisho Trilogy, there was a lot to process and unpack here. My rating/view is, I am sure, subject to change as I potentially learn more about the film, and revisit it further down the line. It is a gorgeous, strange film that keeps you on your toes throughout.
Suzuki's "KAGERÔ-ZA" was an eccentric film that contained no real direct storyline, the film was very disjointed. Although the film was peculiar to me, i found it pretty enjoyable being that it almost kind of felt like i was watching a dream. The Geisha woman was very flamboyantly dressed and i believe she had a love interest (it was that disjointed). The dialogue in the opening scenes were really intimate.
Much more somber than the first one, "Zigeunerweisen"... actually it's really, really slow. Like a death crawl.
So it's obvious that the director Suzuki is not interested in storytelling, just in maintaining an emotion or feeling throughout. He's playing around with the creation of mood and atmosphere and entirely unconcerned with plot or narrative (which is a kind of a mysterious ghost love story... well, mostly).
