This controversial faux documentary portrayal of a young woman’s search for her vanished fiancée is Imamura’s ingeniously constructed and subversively intellectual, yet captivating meditation on the ephemeral nature and inaccuracy of reality.

1967, 130 min., 35mm, b&w. Directed by Shohei Imamura. With Yoshie Hayakawa and Shigeru Tsuyuguchi. Print courtesy of The Japan Foundation with permission from Imamura Production.
