Director: Kenji Mizoguchi Cast: Kinuyo Tanaka, Nobuko Otowa and Yûji Hori Plot: Oyu-Sama it is an adaption of a well known and respected novel from the early '30's (by the famous Japanese novelist Junichiro Tanizaki), although it is set in contemporary times, while the original was set in the Meiji period. It tells the story of a bizarre love triangle of sorts. Shinnosuke (Yûji Hori) is looking for a woman to marry and is introduced to Shizu (Nobuko Otowa) as a prospective partner. However, when they meet he falls for her older sister Oyu (Kinuyo Tanaka), who develops feelings for the young man in return. Unfortunately, Oyu is a widow still caring for her young son and her strict family will not allow her to remarry. Seeing the love the two have for each other, Shizu agrees to marry Shinnosuke, but tells him on their wedding night that this is only to be a formality so that he can remain close to her sister. As this sham marriage moves on, the facade becomes more and more difficult to uphold (especially seeing as Oyu is unaware of it) and rumours in the town threaten their ‘arrangement’. Continuing the director's fascination with the relationship between affairs of the heart and the social mores that shape and sometimes destroy them, Mizoguchi transforms his subject matter into the realm of the transcendental through the use of long, mobile shots an approach that reaches its apotheosis in a take of almost six minutes infused with humanity and emotion.
