Ugetsu Ugetsu
During 16th century civil wars, village potter Masayuki Mori (Rashomon, The Bad Sleep Well, Floating Clouds) decides to follow the money and leave wife Kinuyo Tanaka behind to sell his wares in town, there to be seduced by ghost princess Machiko Kyō. But when the spell is finally broken, he returns to a devastated village. Adapted from Akinari Ueda’s 1776 collection of tales of the supernatural — and a de Maupassant story. This film directed by Kenji Mizoguchi was a Venice Silver Lion winner and for many years a regular on Ten-Best-of-All-Time lists.
