Mistress ★★★ Wild Geese 1953

A classic Japanese period piece about an innocent woman who believes she's married to a ruthless industrialist, only to find he is already married and she is but his mistress. Her love for a medical student unleashes tragedy. Subtly moving in a low-key way; starkly beautiful in black and white. In Japanese, with English subtitles. 106m/B VHS . JP Hideko Takamine, Hiroshi Akutagawa; D: Shiro Toyoda.
