Synopsis
Teaming up with screenwriter Wada Natto and top star Kyo Machiko to adapt Saga Hiro’s memoir, Tanaka’s all-female creative team heralded the arrival of a new female subjectivity in her first widescreen and colour film. The melodramatic story follows an aristocratic woman, whose life undergoes turbulent changes after she marries the brother of the Manchurian Emperor. A vivid portrait of feminine energy thrived with compassion, juxtaposed with a militarised masculinity that aims only to destroy.
