Synopsis
Directing this remarkably feminist film, Tanaka proved herself a serious filmmaker as determined and capable as her subject, Nakajo Fumiko. Her portrayal of the life story of the freewheeling poet is emotionally stunning, revealing her inner torments and desires, while being strikingly honest in addressing the taboo subject of breast cancer – including an operation shown in clinical detail. Quietly devastating yet unflinchingly passionate, this tale stands as a testament to female resilience.
