Hi everyone,

I'm watching a lot of movies from Mizoguchi these days, and while they all are beautiful, I was visually particully impressed by A story from Chikamatsu. I think it's one of the most beautiful black and white film I've ever seen. All the tonalities are so subtle and rich, the lightning is gorgeous, there's a poetry and a beauty in almost every shot that is very rare. Not to mention how perfectly framed all the shots are...

Do you have any informations about how Miyagawa lit this film, or how he worked generally and in his process ? Maybe there's great things to read about him ?

I especially love how he shot at night or when the sun is supposed to be low, it's dark but there's always light in it and a kind of softness... I mean, how perfect is a shot like this one ?
