Lady of Musashino class discussion

After the harsh beauty of Women of the Night I decided to step back and show a film that is deceptively more civilized.  Not considered one of Mizoguchi’s stronger efforts, The Lady of Musashino takes on a strong willed heroine and the change in middle class japan over the post war period in one suburb of Tokyo.

What at first might seem like Merchant/Ivory territory becomes a ruthlessly compassionate study of changing times and those left behind.  A fascinating film.
