Dir Naruse Mikio (1960)
Just-turned-thirty widow Hideko Takamine works as a bar hostess in an exclusive Ginza nightclub, remaining high-minded while dreaming of opening her own place, as round-heeled colleagues cash in and her skirt-chasing manager Tatsuya Nakadai cheers her on while admiring her from afar, amid suicides, her own ulcers, and marriage proposals. Could rich exec Masayuki Mori (Rashomon) be the way out?
