The Lady of Musashino Film Poster


Japanese director Kenji Mizoguchi made this film, an evocative portrayal of life in post-war Japan, one year before his masterpiece 'The Life of O-Haru'. The film captures the tension between the moral decadence of the post-war era, and the traditional values of Japanese society. It tells the story of Michiko (Kinuyo Tanaka), a young wife trapped in an empty, loveless marriage, who becomes involved in a disastrous affair, and ultimately finds herself let down by both men.
