Mizoguchi’s Ugetsu Monogatari [Tales of the Rain and Moon] is a highly acclaimed masterwork of Japanese cinema. Based on a pair of 18th century ghost stories by Ueda Akinari, the film’s release continued Mizoguchi’s introduction to the West, where it was nominated for an Oscar (for Best Costume Design) and won the the Venice Film Festival Silver Lion award (for Best Direction).
The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Mizoguchi’s films for the first time on home video in the UK - Ugetsu Monogatari is only available as a twinpack with Oyu-sama.
