Love Under the Crucifix

by Kinuyo TANAKA


Sixteenth-century Japan. Ogin, the daughter of a prominent tea master, Rikyu, falls in love with Ukon Takayama, a feudal lord who is a Christian convert and already married. Her family, however, force her into a marriage of convenience…

For a time the wife of Shimizu, Mizoguchi’s muse, and actress for Ozu, Kinoshita, Daisuke, Naruse and Kurosawa, one of the greatest actresses and icons of Japanese cinema needs no introduction: Kinuyo Tanaka embodied this for fifty years and, for cinephiles, stands as one of the most enduring memories. She was also a talented director who, through her experience working with the greatest masters, unhesitatingly sent the ball back into their court, as her last film, Love Under the Crucifix, shows. JB
