A woman in postwar Japan tries to forge an independent life for herself. She’s a barmaid who entertains men after hours. She’s played magnificently by Hideko Takamine. Naruse is less well-known in this country than Kurosawa and Ozu. He was a wonderful filmmaker and some call this his greatest work.
DIRECTOR: Mikio Naruse
