1936. Directed by Mizoguchi Kenji. Starring Yamada Isuzu, Takegawa Sei'ichi, and Okura Chiyoko. Subtitles in English, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish.

"Kenji Mizoguchi departed abruptly from his earlier sentimental films into a world of acute realism with Osaka Elegy. Boldly critiquing the position of women in contemporary Japanese society, the film examines a young woman's victimization and descent into prostitution. Together, Mizoguchi's direction and Isuzu Yamada's powerful performance create sorrowful, timeless poetry." (http://www.criterion.com/current/post...)
