Stunning photography mark this story set during the Japanese civil wars of 16th century. Here two ambitious peasants want to make their fortunes. The potter Genjuro intends to sell his wares for vast profits in the local city, while his brother-in-law Tobei wishes to become a samurai.
(Japan, 1954, B&W, 94 mins, dir. Kenji Mizoguchi, with Masayuki Mori & Machiko Kyo, Japanese with English subtitles)
