Summary [v. 1]. Japanese Girls at the Harbor. Shimizu's exquisite silent drama tells of the humiliating social downfall experienced by Sunako after jealousy drives her to commit a terrible crime. With its lushly photographed landscapes and innovative visual storytelling, this film shows a director at the peak of his powers and experimentation.
[v. 2]. Mr. Thank You. Shimizu's endearing road movie follows the long and winding route of a sweet-natured bus driver -- nicknamed Mr. Thank You for his constant exclamation to pedestrians who kindly step out of his path -- traveling from rural Izu to Tokyo.
[v. 3]. The Masseurs and a Woman. A pair of blind masseurs, an enigmatic city woman, a lonely man and his ill-behaved nephew -- The Masseurs and a Woman is made up of crisscrossing miniature studies of love and family at a remote resort in the mountains.
[v. 4]. Ornamental Hairpin. Two bruised souls enact a tender, hesitant romance in a wartime love story. A soldier is forced to prolong his stay at a rural spa when he accidentally cuts his foot on a hairpin. Soon enough he tracks down its lovely owner and finds himself smitten.
