Only a man can portray the perfect woman - and only a perfect woman can wreak the perfect revenge!
Master Director Kon Ichikawa's 1963 classic is
considered by many to be one of the finest films ever made in Japan.
Kasuo Hasegawa stars as Yukinojo, a talented kabuki actor who specializes
in playing female roles (women were not allowed on the stage during the period of
the film). But his success on the stage is but a means to an end; his true goal is
to visit vengeance upon the three ruthless and powerful men who destroyed his family's
business and drove his parents to commit suicide.
Yukinojo's vengeance will be carefully scripted, and skillfully acted. But the
price of admission will be high indeed.
One of Master Director Kon Ichikawa's best films
All-star cast including Shintaro Katsu (Zatoichi) and Raizo Ichikawa (Sleepy Eyes).
