Immortal Love
(Eien no hito)

by Keisuke KINOSHITA


1932, in the vicinity of Aso volcano. Sadako loves Takashi, who goes off to war leaving Sadako with Heibei, the lame son of a wealthy landowner, who takes her by force. The plot and formal choices for this Immortal Love place the film at the crossroads of Japanese cinema’s classic age and its New Wave.

Hideko Takamine and Tetsuya Nakadai are united but divided in this saga that unfolds over thirty years or so. Some film critics view Immortal Loveas the most ambitious work of Kinoshita, who once again tries his hand at some remarkably bold formal approaches. JB
