One of the very finest achievements of the woefully underrated Mikio Naruse, this lacerating post-World War Two drama begins with a man searching for his former lover in the bombsites of Tokyo. On finding her, he renews the affair – but can he leave his wife? This is a sober but penetrating study of disenchantment, defeatism and emotional instability, with the lovers’ desires and needs seldom coinciding.
