Cinema Akil has a line-up of some fantastic talkies this summer, with Kenji Mizoguchi’s The Crucified Lovers being one of them. The film is based on a famous play written by Japanese dramatist Chikamatsu and set in the city of Kyoto in the 17th century.
The plot of this romantic drama revolves around a businessman’s wife and apprentice who are forced to run away together, falling in love on the way.
In 17th century Kyoto, Osan is married to Ishun, a wealthy miserly scroll-maker. When Osan is falsely accused of having an affair with the best worker, Mohei, the pair flee the city and declare their love for each other. Ishun orders his men to find them, and separate them to avoid public humiliation.
You'll be blown away by the exceptional camera work and memorable sequences that unfold as the couple embark on their journey.
