SYNOPSIS

Set in 16th century Japan, the potter Genjuro and his farmer brother Tobei realize that they can make a fortune by selling pottery to the war-ridden city. Miyagi, Genjuro’s wife, tries to stop his husband from pursuing fortune and asks him to stay home and protect his family. The city offers not only fortune, but also exposure to war and the spirit of the dead. Ugetsu with its seamless blend between real and imaginary world remain one of the most prominent of Mizoguchi’s works. 

Berlatarkan Jepang abad ke-16, Genjuro, seorang pembuat pot dan saudaranya, Tobei, seorang petani melihat sebuah peluang besar untuk menjual tembikar di kota yang sedang dilanda perang. Miyagi, istri dari Genjuro, mencoba untuk menghentikan suaminya memburu kekayaan dan memintanya untuk tinggal di rumah dan menjaga keluarganya saja. Kota itu tidak hanya menawarkan keuntungan besar, tapi juga bahaya peperangan dan hawa kematian. Ugetsu dengan baur kabur antara dunia nyata dan imajiner tetap menjadi salah satu karya Mizoguchi yang paling menonjol.
