Format: DVD
This is a pretty good movie--filmed in a style similar to "Under the Flag of the Rising Sun"
Newlyweds- Teiko and Kenichi--are married for a week when Kenichi disappears without a trace-and we are shown Teiko's attempts to discover what happened and how.
She finds that her husband was an ex-policeman involved with prostitutes-is there a connection to this and his disappearance?
Soon her brother-in-law is poisoned--and another young woman commits suicide--apparently, after the suicide of her common law husband. Through a maze of false leads and disinformation-Teiko finally discovers what happened to her husband and how!
A very good mystery--my only complaint being that some of the transitions between scenes are a little too abrupt. All in all---a very good movie--well worth watching! Yoshiko Kuga does an excellent job as the abandoned wife!
Black & White--with sub-titles!

This is not a "dim copy" of anything. The movie might be in black and white, but its psychological analysis is expertly done with many shades of grey. One of the best winter movies ever. The snow sits on top of the buildings in this movie almost as heavy as the moral burdens oppressing its characters. Much more memorable - in terms of shots - than any Hitchcock movie. Don't miss it.

Nicely acted, beautifully shot, intense drama. Brilliantly brings to life Seicho Matsumoto's story in true Hitchcockian style. Never a false step.
