Yōjinbō by Akira Kurosawa( visu )
22 editions published between 1961 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 731 libraries worldwide
In a flea bitten, dusty Japanese town, a ronin (unemployed samurai) finds himself in the middle of a feud between two warring mafia's. On one side of town a local silk merchant is building a small army, while on the other, a sake merchant is hiring anybody who can carry a sword. The two merchants engage in a bidding war to employ the services of the itinerant samurai, but he has his own plans. Disgusted by both sides, the samurai, (Mifune) instigates a war between the two factions and with great pleasure sits in the town's bell tower watching them cut each other to pieces. After freeing the daughter of a local villager from bondage, he leaves the town in search of further exploits. Yojimbo was the inspiration for several Sergio Leone films including the Clint Eastwood vehicle, A Fistful of Dollars which was made a few years later. Kurosawa portrays 19th century Japan as a society where corruption and calamity are so commonplace that the distinction between bandits and samurai have become blurred. Kurosawa was one of the few Japanese directors who was allowed to work with relative creative freedom, his early films were consistently commercially successful, as was the case with Yojimbo. Kurosawa's films along with his contemporaries Ozu, Mizoguchi, and Ichikawa raised Japanese cinema onto the world stage in the period immediately after World War II
Onna ga kaidan o agaru toki = When a woman ascends the stairs by Mikio Naruse( visu )
4 editions published between 1960 and 2007 in Japanese and held by 449 libraries worldwide
When a Woman Ascends the Stairs might be Japanese filmmaker Mikio Naruse's finest hour--a delicate, devastating study of a woman, Keiko (played heartbreakingly by Hideko Takamine), who works as a bar hostess in Tokyo's very modern postwar Ginza district, who entertains businessmen after work. Sly, resourceful, but trapped, Keiko comes to embody the conflicts and struggles of a woman trying to establish her independence in a male-dominated society. When a Woman Ascends the Stairs shows the largely unsung yet widely beloved master Naruse at his most socially exacting and profoundly emotional

1 edition published in 2013 in Japanese and held by 36 libraries worldwide

After enduring further misfortunes as a concubine, a courtesan, wife, and prostitute, Oharu becomes a mendicant nun in her old age. A peerless chronicler of the soul who specialized in supremely emotional, visually exquisite films about the circumstances of women in Japanese society throughout its history, Kenji Mizoguchi (Ugetsu) had already been directing movies for decades when he made The Life of Oharu in 1952
