Sunday, April 18, 2010

© Kadokawa Pictures, Inc.

1967, 94 min., 35 mm, color, in Japanese with live English subtitles. Directed by Yasuzo Masumura. With Ayako Wakao, Mariko Okada, Koji Takahashi. Print courtesy of Kadokawa Pictures, Inc.

For the first time outside Japan, Masumura’s Two Wives will be on the silver screen. When did you last see a film that offered two great roles for women? Everything you need to know about Two Wives is there in the faces of the two actresses: Mariko Okada and Ayako Wakao, who hold the camera’s attention without strain or scheming.

After a random encounter at a bar, two couples collide. Two men, two women, embroiled in a love-and-hate drama that threatens to engulf them. The sexual anxiety between the interwoven couples tautens right up to the nearly unbearable tension of the climax, in this rare masterpiece by the director of Manji and Blind Beast.

Part of the Globus Film Series:
Mad, Bad.... & Dangerous to Know: Three Untamed Beauties
