Ugetsu ★★★★

HoopTober Part VI: #25
- 6 films from before 1966 (5/6)

UGETSU tells a tale as old as man himself about men succumbing to greed and power and losing all sense for what really is important, while their families are left to suffer.

Director Kenji Mizoguchi knows how to create a great atmosphere and UGETSU features some images of truly poetic beauty. Unfortunately though, on an emotional level it didn‘t reach me as much as I wanted it to.
