Film Series: When a Woman Ascends the Stairs

1960. Japan. Dir: Mikio Naruse. With Hideko Takamine. 111 min.

The claustrophobia of womanhood in 1960s Japan is set to cocktail jazz as a fiercely independent bar hostess navigates life in the Ginza district. Unwavering humanism flavors this subtle concoction in which love and commerce lose all distinction, bringing depth to the bitter taste of heartbreak.
