#4 - When a Woman ascends the Stairs

de Mikio Naruse

e encontrar um momento bus stop mas este com lágrimas. Hideko Takamine, para me lembrar. aqui na Criterion. aqui, no filmref. "It would appear obvious in this respect, to compare the roughly contemporaneous ‘women’s pictures’ directed by Douglas Sirk in America and Rainer W. Fassbinder later in Germany with Naruse’s work. Their similarities and differences are intriguing: both focus on social pressures and domestic disillusionment but Naruse’s focus is distinctly quiet vis-í -vis Sirk’s melodrama, and internally painful where Fassbinder would probably externalize.", na Electric Sheep Magazine.
