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

2 editions published in 2016 in Japanese and held by 163 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
