Japan, 1965, 161 Minute Running Time
Program: Essential Art House: 50 Years of Janus Films
Language: Japanese English Sub-Titles
DIRECTOR: Masaki Kobayashi
This visually and aurally ravishing widescreen film, perhaps the greatest of Masaki Kobayashi, is adapted from the ghostly tales of Lafcadio Hearn, the Greek-Irish writer who made Japan his home in the 1890s. The level of stylization ? in color, composition, music, sound, speech and movement ? of these four tales is never less than breathtaking. Kwaidan bankrupted Kobayashi?s production company, but the effort was well worth it: there?s nothing else like it in all of cinema. Made in close collaboration with the great composer Toru Takemitsu.
