Tender tale set in 19th-century Japan about a young, forlorn Japanese woman yearning to escape her emotionally barren life as a geisha, who ultimately finds true romance when the tides bring in a mysterious man, himself in need of healing. Despite protracted pacing and moments of melodrama, the richly textured film, directed by Kei Kumai from a screenplay by legendary filmmaker Akira Kurosawa, is full of enchanting, skillfully crafted visuals, and offers a poetic, bittersweet message about the transforming power of love and the inherent dignity of the human person. Subtitles. Sexual encounters with partial nudity, a rape and some violence. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults.
