(1963, Kon Ichikawa) In relentless pursuit of his parents’ murderers, Kazuo Hasegawa’s onnagata (a man playing a woman in kabuki) plays it offstage as well, while dallying with highborn Ayako Wakao. Ichikawa’s masterpiece. 4K DCP. Approx. 115 min.
“A film of phenomenal all-round accomplishment, with daringly stylized visuals. Nothing is more astonishing than the twin performances of Kazuo Hasegawa as both Yukinojo and the thief who befriends him.”
– Tony Rayns, Time Out (London)
