Of all the films about prostitution, Kenji Mizoguchi's Street of Shame, made in 1956 at the end of his career, is perhaps the greatest.

The settings are a far removed from the medieval landscapes of Ugetsu or The Life of Oharu, but Mizoguchi's focus on the plight of his women characters is as intent and heart-rending as ever.

The late Kenji Mizoguchi, who directed Ugetsu, failed to show as much imagination in this one as in that one.

Well worth seeing, if only as a challenge.
