Synopsis

Tanizaki's masterpiece is the story of four sisters, and the declining fortunes of a traditional Japanese family. It is a loving and nostalgic recreation of the sumptuous, intricate upper-class life of Osaka immediately before World War Two.

With surgical precision, Tanizaki lays bare the sinews of pride, and brings a vanished era to vibrant life.
