What This month, see three notable, rarely screened Japanese film adaptations of author Yasunari Kawabata's works at the Louis Koo Cinema. Yoshishige Yoshida's Woman of the Lake (1966) is a profoundly sensual film with a gorgeous aesthetic that feels a lot like Antonioni's L'Avventura. Yoshimura Kozaburo's Thousand Cranes (1953) is set amid the beauty of a tea ceremony and tells the story of a young man who stumbles into a passionate yet destructive relationship with his late father's mistress and daughter. Lastly, there's Heinosuke Gosho's The Dancing Girl of Izu (1933), a sublime, rich human drama in which a college student recounts his youthful infatuation with a travelling actress; the silent film has a live music accompaniment.
