But this epic portrait of an inexorable fall from grace, starring the incredibly talented KINUYO TANAKA (The Ballad of Narayama) as an imperial lady-in-waiting who gradually descends to street prostitution, was the movie that gained its Director international attention, ushering in a new golden period for him.
