There is currently no review on this movie available in English.

Fünf Frauenschicksale aus dem Bordellviertel Tokyos in den 1950er Jahren stehen im Zentrum des letzten Films von Kenji Mizoguchi, der die Mehrzahl seiner Werke der historischen und sozialen Situation japanischer Frauen widmete. Das Thema ist mit gesellschaftskritischem Engagement, menschlicher Anteilnahme und unspekulativer Offenheit gestaltet.
