Callum Joseph Kilgarriff’s review published on Letterboxd:
Wondrous, haunting cinema. A fable-like folk / fairy tale warning against excessive greed and the manipulation of misguided ambition, achieved through myth and fantasy within a 16th century civil war environment.
Gorgeously shot and enticingly atmospheric, this one will stick by me for a long time i'm sure. Mizoguchi is a master storyteller.
