The Insect Woman

27 Oct 2009

Imamura charts the crucial points in 20th century Japanese history through the experiences of Tome Matsuki, a young woman who survives a harsh rural upbringing to become a prostitute in Tokyo. Although her life is controlled by men, her resilience points to a spirit of rapacious independence that makes her a fascinating heroine.
