““There are moments in the picture, famous ones, that I’ve seen again and again and that always take my breath away… Just to think of these moments now fills me with awe and wonder.” –Martin Scorsese on UGETSU

Part ghost story, part wartime tragedy epic, UGETSU is one of the great films to use the language of cinema to interpret and express the philosophical quandaries that arose from the wild, violent first half of the 20th century. An absolute miracle of cinematic achievement, the film was directed by Kenji Mizoguchi, an early Japanese master who influenced the Japanese directors to follow him, including Akira Kurosawa.”
