A Geisha

This long-unavailable 1953 film from Japanese master director Kenji Mizoguchi (who helmed and astonishing 87 films!) follows the struggle of two women (an older geisha and her beautiful young apprentice) to survive in Japan's rapidly changing post-war world. Like all Japanese films of the period, this one takes a little patience to watch, but rewards viewers with a fascinating portrait of economic exploitation. In Japanese with English subtitles. 84 minutes
