    Sansho the Bailiff

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Zushio, how I long for you!
    Isn't life torture?
    Anju, how I long for you!
    Isn't life torture?

    hearing that newcomer woman sing that song the first time, like some accidentally recieved transmission from a time and place far, far away. so good

    Miyagawa's work in this is really extraordinary, those camera moves, the beautiful shades of gray, really makes the film look mythical.
