Yoshiwara

by Max Ophüls
1937 - France - 102 min
June 22 | 7:00 p.m

Considered something of a curiosity in the oeuvre of French filmmaker Max Ophüls, Yoshiwara is the story of a love triangle between a geisha, a Russian military officer and a family servant. An intriguing example of France’s fascination with Japanese culture in the early 20th century – which also led to a craze for Utamaro’s work – this rarely screened classic also features the romantic themes and visual splendor of Ophuls’ better-known works.
