Mizoguchi's final work is an urgent & heartfelt look at the Tokyo sex industry. His stance feels rooted in conservative values, argued with deep humane concern & sensitivity to cultural & socioeconomic realities. It feels like a culmination of an artist's career & a direct moral statement drawing on a lifetime of experience. Stripped bare of all poetry, naivety & idealism (or progressive vision) it could feel contrived or blunt if not for Mizoguchi's assertive poise. Peculiar avant-garde score.

Com Mizoguchi é uma porrada atrás da outra e aqui em seu último filme não é diferente, mais uma vez retratando mulheres envolvidas numa teia de sofrimento erigida sob a égide do patriarcado japonês é mais um filme de dilacerar o coração vindo do diretor e realmente muito crítico da condição social e psicológica que a prostituição traz à essas mulheres. Mais uma obra prima de Kenji se é que dá para chamar algum filme dele de não-obra-prima. DVD Versátil O Cinema de Mizoguchi

As many have noted the score in this film is so good. The first time you hear it it's a bit jarring (obviously) but i would honestly love to hear more. Shame I can't find it anywhere online. Not sure I 100% agree with the politics of the film but w/e

Viewed October 8, 2016. It's heartwrenching, as usual; a series of crushing disappointments, agonies, quiet regrets. In general, every moment where Mizoguchi moves outside of the brothel to sketch in these characters' family lives. It's because the brothel itself is so suffocating, so much like a prison, that it's easy to forget that the world goes on around it, always on the precipice of hard times. A fitting end to Mizoguchi's career.

well, what have we here. a good japanese prostitution drama for once, directed with mizoguichi's typical sympathetic touch. he takes a solid anti-prostitution stance without being too conservative or condescending, and the strange score is amazing. perhaps my favourite mizoguchi to date.

One of Japan's better prostitute films. Mizoguchi is pretty damn near feministic in his sympathy for his characters.

Wonderful character-focused piece that was both humanist and realist. Mizoguchi's careful treading to avoid drawing obvious moral lines both in the interpersonal and political realms really gave the film life and sensitivity. I wasn't that positive about the score and some of the acting from the lesser characters (Yumeko's son, e.g.), but it was truly excellent overall.

In his last film, Mizoguchi depicts five women from Tokyo's red light district without sentimentality but with great compassion. Machiko Kyo gives a superb performance as the Americanized Mickey, but the four other actresses give fine performances as well, showing us how four very different women end up making their living as sex-workers. Mizoguchi condemns the economic and patriarchal system that create this life, but he shows the woman realistically too, with all their vanity and venality.

Mizoguchi's final film is one of his most detailed explorations of character. His ability to humanize was unmatched in Japanese cinema, and here he deals with a very motley group. Some are more likable than others, but all are presented in a sympathetic manner. The ensemble acting is wonderful, Kazuo Miyagawa's sense of composition is striking, and the score is really something else.

Mizoguchi's final film revisits one of his favorite themes: struggling women, specifically prostitutes. There is a feeling of repetition here, and it lacks the stunning emotional impact of his better films, but it may be his best work technically. It looks wonderful, and a lot of the camera setups are really interesting. The avant-garde music is an unusual touch as well, sparsely used but startling. The story is also briskly paced, managing to juggle a large cast without getting too confusing.
