Kenji Mizoguchi's "Oyu-sama" (1951)

English titles: Lady Oyu, Miss Oyu




Three-dimensional spaces confine people, define people. Architectures we live in change the way we see things, concepts, relationships. The perception of space is one with the perception of the world. Abstract form can touch all human emotions, thoughts...

Mizoguchi is a master of form and light. As in the case of Miss Oyu, his lighting can be very precise, with high contrast. This is one of my very favorite Mizoguchi films.
