Emotions Exposed: The Films of Hikari Mitsushima

Written by Brooke Heinz

"As a result of her on-screen versatility and diverse filmography, Mitsushima was inducted into the 2017 Tokyo International Film Festival’s Muses of Japanese Cinema lineup alongside fellow acting peers Sakura Ando, Aoi Miyazaki, and Yu Aoi. The selection panel noted that Mitsushima “expresses the conflict within us, and the way our actions can betray our thoughts.” In exploring how Mitsushima achieves such depth across genres, we look back on five films which showcase how the actress brings into focus the emotional conflict and uncertainty experienced by women at various stages in life."
