The Life of Oharu

The Life of Oharu, Kenji Mizoguchi’s 1952 masterpiece, tells the story of a young woman’s descent into poverty and prostitution in feudal Japan. After the discovery of her forbidden romance, Oharu is exiled and forced by her father to become a concubine. The film, one of Mizoguchi’s favorite projects, won the International Prize at the 1952 Venice International Film Festival.

“An evocation of a noble-ridden society that took unheeding toll of its lower castes.” -A.H. Wieler, The New York Times
