Infidelity threatens to break up a marriage in this evocative feature from legendary Japanese director Mikio Naruse. Tsuma concerns the struggles of a woman who finds out that her husband is cheating on her; to avoid the stigma of a broken marriage, she decides she'll do whatever it takes to keep him with her. Tsumawas adapted from a story by Fumiko Hayashi, who wrote about women's cultural struggles in 1950s Japan and whose writings formed the basis for five other Naruse films. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi


Critic Reviews for Tsuma (Wife)

All Critics (2)

Flawed but powerful Ozu-like dramedy.

June 29, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Naruse is a keen observer of the whole spectrum of human behavior, a portraitist who depicts his subjects in all their raw, yet submissive complexity.
