Utamaro and His Five Women
Directed by Kenji Mizoguchi
Kôtarô Bandô, Kinuyo Tanaka, Kôtarô Bandô, Hiroko Kawasaki, Toshiko Iizuka
Mizoguchi’s film is based on the life of a prominent 18th Century artist and his complex relationships with the women who inspired him. While jealousies and passions abound among the courtesans and geishas who act as his models, Utamaro seems able only to truly connect with them through his paintings.
