🖋️ Japanese film scholar Linda Ehrlich considers the Buddhist undertones of Kenji Mizoguchi's classic, to the film's reception both in Japan and overseas.

👻 Kenji Mizoguchi's masterpiece takes place in 16th-century Japan, where two men — a peasant who yearns to become a samurai, and a potter who is seduced by an exquisitely beautiful woman who turns out to be a phantom — allow their weakness, greed and pride to lead both themselves and their faithful wives to ruin.

«Simultaneously realistic, allegorical and supernatural, Ugetsu is the most stylistically perfect of all Mizoguchi's work, and many critics consider it the greatest Japanese film ever made» (David L. Cook).
