Kenji Mizoguchi's sensitive portrait of a woman trapped by her fate in feudal Japan is a stunning indictment of the treatment of women. Told in flashback, Life of Oharu recounts the harrowing story of a young girl whose misadventures lead her from lives as lady-in-waiting to mistress of a lord and finally to prostitution. Superbly shot, Criterion's edition of this Japanese cinema jewel features a new digital transfer.
