Synopsis: Mizoguchi's last complete film fictionalizes the account of the tragic lives of Tokyo's prostitutes as a searing indictment of a society that legally exploits women. Perhaps the greatest example of Mizoguchi's paralleled romantic and realistic attitudes, he creates a stirring portrait of women's communal life and delineates the illusory out into the harsh streets.
