The Reviews for Osaka Elegy (1936) 720p


Superb darkly comedic dramaReviewed bybbrooks94Vote: 8/10

A truly magnificent drama film which follows the downward spiral of a young Japanese woman who is surrounded by uncaring and pathetic male figures, as she earns money for her debt ridden father and brother by becoming a mistress to the head of her company. It's not really tragic or emotionally sad, as you would expect it to be. In fact, the upbeat music towards the end and quirky nature of the lead female suggests it is a dark comedy. We are laughing with Ayako at the pathetic individuals who surround her, mostly men, and the unfair situation in which she has found herself. Either way, Mizoguchi presents us with the situation plainly, and teases out some brilliant performances from his cast along the way. Great stuff!

Amazing CinematographyReviewed bygavin6942Vote: 7/10

Ayako (Isuzu Yamada) becomes the mistress of her boss, Mr. Asai, so she can pay her father's debt, and prevent him from going to prison for embezzlement. She also sends money to her brother Hiroshi to pay his university tuition, but her father intercepts it.

Mizoguchi considered the film his first serious effort as a director, and while I am not familiar with his earlier work, I have to say this is the kind of film that leaves a mark. Either Mizoguchi or his cinematographer had an excellent awareness of the camera -- the door closing to block the camera early on in the film -- years ahead of its time.

The subject matter in general is impressive. I am not sure what the typical morality was in pre-war Japan, but to feature adultery and whatnot in the 1930s seems quite bold.

Osaka Elegy reviewReviewed byJoeytheBritVote: 7/10

A young woman is forced to become her boss's mistress in order to provide for her ungrateful family. A quietly heart-rending observation of the injustice suffered by working class women in early/mid-20th Century Japan from Kenji Mizoguchi. Patiently constructed, and possessing an unmistakable air of inevitability, it has a damningly low opinion of men. Isuzu Yamada, who was so scheming in Sisters of Gion, Mizoguchi's other similarly themed offering from 1936, gives a poignant performance as a woman whose inherent goodness is evident in spite of the sometimes dishonest things she does. Worth watching.
