Rather ridiculous plot benefits from the Mizoguchi touch.

Forbidden love, suppresion of women's personal freedoms, impossibility of true happiness. These are the themes which Mizoguchi's pretty and well acted romance drama touch upon, as he had done many times before Miss Oyu. Still, while thematically this may not be a wholly original film, there are undeniable pleasures here.

This is probably the first time I hate a film by Mizoguchi. Unappealing, depressing story about three people who cannot be honest to each other and themselves. I can't argue that technically it's a gem, but to indulge myself in its unimpressive state of affair is another day in hell.

A man falls in love with his fiancee's sister, a widowed woman who has to live with her husband's family and who cannot remarry, but who falls in love with him. An interesting look at old Japenese conventions.

The story is a fairly generic melodramatic tear-jerker. However, Mizoguchi's direction is truly stunning here. The mise-en-scene is painterly and the strong acting elevates the melodrama.
