The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden ★★★

Shinobu Yaguchi still a little rough around the edges here. He would go on and do much better, but it has a lot of the same hallmarks of his later works, and is a entertaining tale about an oddball with an unusual passion for money, and the even more unusual way she finds to get it.

I wouldn't recommend this for a first contact with the director filmography, but if you're already familiar with it and a fan, it won't disappoint.
