Summary
  • [V. 1]. Japanese girls at the harbor. Shimizu's exquisite silent drama tells of the humiliating social downfall experienced by Sunako after jealousy drives her to commit a terrible crime. With its lushly photographed landscapes and innovative visual storytelling, this film shows a director at the peak of his powers and experimentation
  • [V. 2]. Mr. Thank You. Shimizu's endearing road movie follows the long and winding route of a sweet-natured bus driver, nicknamed Mr. Thank You for his constant exclamation to pedestrians who kindly step out of his path, traveling from rural Izu to Tokyo
  • [V. 3]. The masseurs and a woman. A pair of blind masseurs, an enigmatic city woman, a lonely man and his ill-behaved nephew -- The Masseurs and a Woman is made up of crisscrossing miniature studies of love and family at a remote resort in the mountains
  • [V. 4]. Ornamental hairpin. Two bruised souls enact a tender, hesitant romance in a wartime love story. A soldier is forced to prolong his stay at a rural spa when he accidentally cuts his foot on a hairpin. Soon enough he tracks down its lovely owner and finds himself smitten
