Movie Info

Japan's contributions to the 1957 Venice Film Festival included three earlier-vintage Kenzi Mizoguchi films. Produced in 1951, Musashino Fujin (aka Mrs. Musashino and Lady Musashino) is another of Mizoguchi's pro-feminist efforts. The title character comes to grief when she falls in love with her cousin. In any other culture, this would constitute a betrayal, except that the woman's husband is a flagrant philanderer. In the end, however, Lady Musashino is let down by both the men in her life. Her drastic solution to her problem is treated by the director as an act of courage and defiance. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

An elegy for Japanese times past and future, leaving a taste as bitter as cyanide.
