[狂った一頁 KURUTTA IPPĒJI]
Teinosuke Kinugasa's 1926 film is a landmark of avant-garde cinema, employing freewheeling montage, double-exposed images and famously forgoing the use of any intertitles to convey its moody, impressionistic tale of love and madness. A sailor takes a job in the asylum where his wife has been committed after she drowned their son, in the hope of rescuing her. Kinugasa co-authored the script with, among others, future Nobel Prize-winning author Yasunari Kawabata ("Snow Country"). DIR/SCR Teinosuke Kinugasa; SCR Yasunari Kawabata, Minoru Inuzuka, Bankô Sawada. Japan, 1926, b&w, 70 min. NOT RATED
