"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

Saikaku ichidai onna = Life of Oharu by Kenji Mizoguchi( Visual )

2 editions published in 1952 in Japanese and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film traces, mainly in flashback, the life of Oharu from court lady through the various strata of 17th century society to prostitute, a story that embodies the fate of women in feudal Japan. Classical Japanese cinema at its most elegant and affecting with masterfully studied camera movement, painstakingly detailed recreation of period detail and a soundtrack of rare diversity and effect, this is the film that established Mizoguchi's international reputation. Widely regarded as his most powerful protest about the treatment of women in Japanese society, it has also been argued by Cohen that Mizoguchi's film is at heart "a patriarchial discourse" in which Oharu, "beautiful but lacking", is a symbol of suffering and desire reflecting Mizoguchi's ambiguous attitude towards women
