The Insect Woman

Shohei Imamura's 1963 film gives a documentary treatment to a subject his later films would treat expressionistically—the ruthless struggle to survive. His title character is a peasant girl who becomes the madam of a Tokyo whorehouse, is destroyed by the war, and ends up back in her home village seeking refuge in a commune. With Sachiko Hidari. In Japanese with subtitles. 123 min.
