Thousand Cranes

An intriguing but not entirely successful 1969 'Scope feature by the idiosyncratic Yasuzo Masumura, adapted from a famous novel by Yasunari Kawabata about a tea ceremony master (Mikijiro Hira) who becomes sexually involved with two of his late father's girlfriends (one played by the great Machiko Kyo). Masumura (1924-'86) clearly had a feeling for kinky subjects of this kind, but here his mise en scene tends to be relatively flat and predictable.
