SISTERS OF THE GION (Gion no shimai)

Mizoguchi's first commercial and critical success is a story of two geisha sisters – Emekichi, a submissive traditionalist, and the fiercely independent Omocha.
Hatching a plan to secure the future for them both, Omocha embarks on a reckless course of action with disastrous consequences.
