Film Description

A stunning mix of beautiful set pieces and heart-stopping action, Kon Ichikawa's celebrated melodrama tells the story of Yukinojo, a female impersonator in the kabuki theatre who uses his acting skills to take revenge on three men who forced his parents to commit suicide. Seducing the daughter of one, and ruining another with a cunning business plan, Yukinojo soon has his enemies exactly where he wants them. Starring Kazuo Hasegawa in the lead role, the film sets stylised images against a score which ranges from cocktail jazz to traditional Japanese music.
