Synopsis

Takehisa Yumeji was an artist known as much for his paintings of beautiful women as for his bohemian lifestyle. Traveling to Kanazawa to meet his lover, he instead falls for a widow whose murdered husband inconveniently returns from the dead.

MUBI's take

A painter-poet becomes enveloped in the romance, life and death swirling around him, conceived with a beguilingly serene surrealism by studio exile Seijun Suzuki. His final film set in Japan’s decadent Taisho era has the infamously esoteric director dramatizing—in his mad way—the life of an artist.
