"Quite simply one of the greatest of filmmakers," said Jean-Luc Godard of Kenji Mizoguchi. And UGETSU, a ghost story like no other, is surely the Japanese director's supreme achievement. Derived from stories by Akinari Ueda and Guy de Maupassant, this haunting tale of love and loss, with its exquisite blending of the otherworldly and the real, is one of the most beautiful films ever made.

An ancient, nightmarish, spooky magic tale of false aspirations, betrayal and redemption, masterfully brought to the screen by Mizoguchi.

One of truly great visual feasts in cinema history. And certainly one of the top Japanese films of all time.
