After more than a decade of sober political dramas and social-minded period pieces, the great Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi shifted gears dramatically for this rapturously stylized quartet of ghost stories. Featuring colorfully surreal sets and luminous cinematography, these haunting tales of demonic comeuppance and spiritual trials, adapted from writer Lafcadio Hearn's collections of Japanese folklore, are existentially frightening and meticulously crafted. In The black hair, a poor young samurai leaves his first wife to marry a rich woman. When he is unhappy in his second marriage, he returns to his first wife, who at first appears unchanged from when he last saw her. In The woman of the snow, a woodcutter is spared by a mysterious ghost-like woman in the snow, but must promise never to tell anyone what he has seen. In Hoichi, the earless, a blind musician-monk named Hoichi is commanded by a gathering of ghosts to sing the saga of their ancient deeds. The head monk paints Hoichi's body with prayer verses to protect him, but unfortunately overlooks Hoichi's ears. In A cup of tea, a writer wonders what would happen to a person who drinks another's soul and finds out

Takemitsu's desire to express thoughts in prose as well as music, not typical of Japanese composers until recently, is more frequently associated with nineteenth-century European composers. With little interest in program music, Takemitsu does not believe that words explain the essence of music. Words are important in his own compositional technique, however, and his interest in writing is certainly more than casual. Words stimulate his imagination and give rise literally to images that in turn activate his sensibilities in his search for sound, the real essence of music
