Famed kabuki onnagata and star of Daniel Schmid's splendid The Written Face, Tamasaburo Bando directs this swooningly romantic drama. Set during the turn of the 20th century, the film is about a platonic love affair between a wealthy middle-aged heiress (Sayuri Yoshinaga) and a brooding doctor (Masaya Kato), beginning with an exchange of glances in a park on a beautiful spring morning, and ending on his operating table nine years later. In spite of its abbreviated length -- a scant 50 minutes -- this film proved to be a big hit in Japan.
