The story of the last chrysanthemum = Zangiku monogatari by Kenji Mizoguchi( Visual )

19 editions published between 1939 and 2016 in Japanese and French and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This heartrending masterpiece by Kenji Mizoguchi about the give-and-take between life and art marked the director's first use of the hypnotic long takes and eloquent camera movements that would come to define his films. Kikunosuke (Shotaro Janayagi), the adopted son of legendary kabuki actor, who is striving to achieve stardom by mastering female roles, turns to his infant brother's wet nurse for support and affection -- and she soon gives up everything for her beloved's creative glory. Offering a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of kabuki theater in the late nineteenth century, The Story of the Last Chrysamthemum provides a critique of the oppression of women and the sacrifices required of them, and represents the pinnacle of Mitzoguchi's early career" -- Back of container
Chikamatsu monogatari( Visual )

2 editions published in 2018 in Japanese and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of a string of late-career masterworks made by Kenji Mizoguchi in the first half of the 1950s, A Story from Chikamatsu (a.k.a. The Crucified Lovers) is an exquisitely moving tale of forbidden love struggling to survive in the face of persecution. Based on a classic of eighteenth-century Japanese drama, the film traces the injustices that befall a Kyoto scroll maker's wife and his apprentice after each is unfairly accused of wrongdoing. Bound by fate in an illicit, star-crossed romance, they go on the run in search of refuge from the punishment prescribed them: death. Shot in gorgeous, painterly style by master cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa, this delicately delivered indictment of societal oppression was heralded by Akira Kurosawa as a 'great masterpiece that could only be made by Mizoguchi'"--Container

Quite simply one of the greatest of filmmakers, said Jean-Luc Godard of Kenji Mizoguchi. And Ugetsu, a ghost story like no other, is surely the Japanese director's supreme achievement.
