Directed by Kenji Mizugochi, 1952. Once again, a heroine (Kinuyo Tanaka) turns forlonrly to prostitution in a Mizugochi film--but the poise and emotional wallop of this entry, one of the director's best, make it a keeper. Kurosawa regular Toshiro Mifune appears in a small role as a samurai.

Screening held at the Museum of Modern Art. (
Film ticket free with museum admission; screenings-only admission $12, seniors $10, students $8, children under 16 free.
