Narayama bushiko

Trailer
Directed by Keisuke Kinoshita

Synopsis

This most stylized work by Kinoshita is also his most dramatically theatrical, replete with meticulously designed soundstages and dramatic lighting. A haunting allegory that shows the conflict between filial duty, tradition and social pressure.
