Seisaku's Wife
(Seisaku no tsuma)

by Yasuzô MASUMURA

Okane, is an outcast in her small farming village, due to her past association with an older man to whom she was sold by desperately poor parents. Okane’s past haunts her present: sullen, depressed, having been abused most of her short life, she is rehabilitated by the unlikely attentions of Seisaku, the local «model youth», on his return from the army. «The Imperial decree says to love one another,» he announces. Seisaku starts a love affair with Okane that will end up making him as marginal as she. The sensuality of the rebel lovers is a marked contrast to the rigid militarism that is apparent in the mood of the small farming village.
