Audience Reviews for Onna no naka ni iru tanin (The Stranger Within a Woman)

Different from Naruse's other offerings. It still focuses on Japanese family life and themes such as class and honour, but he gives it a darker edge. The film follows a family after the murder of a close friends wife. Rumours start spreading but it soon becomes apparent that the Father isn't telling the whole story. Very racy for the time, this film contains one of the sexiest moments in cinematic history. The handling of guilt and revenge is done in a very subtle manner and the film avoids melodrama. Naruse also uses some excellent time jump techniques and certainly shows another side to himself in the structure of the narrative.
