Quite simply one of the greatest of filmmakers, said Jean-Luc Godard of Kenji Mizoguchi. And Ugetsu, a ghost story like no other, is surely the Japanese director's supreme achievement.

The story of the last chrysanthemum = Zangiku monogatari by Kenji Mizoguchi( Visual )

37 editions published between 1939 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This drama set in the Meiji period concerns the life of an actor, the heir to a celebrated family, in the feudal-like insular and rigid world of kabuki theatre. Through the support of his mistress, after failure, rebellion and ostracism, the actor returns to the fold as a great performer in his own right. She now drops out of his life because his family strongly disapproves of her. However, in the spirit of a popular dramatic genre, shinpa (which Mizoguchi brought into the cinema) his mistress is no passive sufferer but endures her fate as an act of will. The intense pathos reflects Mizoguchi's sensitivity to the force of understatement. In long 'takes' (sometimes in one shot scenes up to 9 min. in length) the flow of the tracking camera alternates with scenes of remarkable stillness in long-held compositions. Only the scenes of Kabuki theatre are densely edited in analytic style
