The Life of Oharu

High-Def Digest
22 August 2013
  • Conclusion: 'The Life of Oharu' is a great film. While it is not light-hearted or particularly fun to watch, it's definitely an important and beautiful film. The acting by Tanaka is superb. One of the better films of early Japanese cinema.

THE LIFE OF OHARU - Blu-ray review

  • Summary: "Oharu” could easily become a sadistic exploitation trip in the hands of a lesser filmmaker; Mizoguchi's precise technique yields something profound instead.

The Life of Oharu (1952)

  • Conclusion: I think that it is fantastic to see that Kenji Mizoguchi's films are slowly making their way to Blu-ray. The Life of Oharu , one of the Japanese master's best films, now looks quite wonderful, and I cannot recommend it highly-enough to anyone interested in classic Japanese cinema.
