Program Abstract: "Osaka, 1938: Four daughters of an old merchant family face all unknowing the end of a gentler way of life. Kon Ichikawa's exquisite adaptation of Junichiro Tanizaki's classic novel is a Jane Austen-like chronicle whose ravishing pictorialism and indidious black humor makes theis a perfect evocation of another time--that speaks to all the world."
