"Quite simply one of the greatest of filmmakers,” said Jean-Luc Godard of Kenji Mizoguci. And Ugetsu, a ghost story like no other, is surely the Japanese director’s supreme achievement. Derived from stories by Anikari Ueda and Guy de Maupassant, this haunting tale of love and loss – with its exquisite blending of the otherworldly and the real, through its direct incorporation of noh and kabuki theatrical styles – is one of the most beautiful films ever made.
