Dir Naruse Mikio (1956)
Young star geisha Hideko Takamine complains, while head-of-the-house Isuzu Yamada (Throne of Blood) always looks on the bright side, but quietly observing maid Kinuyo Tanaka (Ugetsu) is the only one who actually realizes the inevitable end of the world of the geisha in a harsh post-war Tokyo. Three super-stars lead a great cast ? including two of the Seven Samurai ? with Yamada showing her actual shamisen prowess and a wordless final reel. ?A rare kind of cinema-of-character, comparable only to the films of Ozu.? ? New York Times.
