Sisters of Gion

Sisters of Gion


Sisters of Gion is Mizoguchi's classic study of two geisha sisters, one who is faithful to the old ways, the other who finds herself more in tune with modern thinking. Perennial themes of Japanese cinema and literature, the tension between old and new and the place of women in Japanese society are often explored by Mizoguchi and his long-time screenwriter Yoda.
