"Stunningly played and directed"
-- Variety

Many films have used classic Japanese theatrical forms, but none with such shocking cinematic effect as director Masahiro Shinoda's Double Suicide. In this striking adaptation of a Bunraku (puppet theater) play, a paper merchant sacrifices family, fortune, and ultimately life for his erotic obsession with a prostitute (played by the same actress as his wife). Criterion is proud to present Double Suicide in a luminous new transfer. Contains nudity and explicit sexual situations.
