“In (SANSHO) THE BAILIFF, Kenji Mizoguchi’s style with its perfect balancing and harmonizing of sympathetic involvement and contemplation, reaches its fullest maturity. Few artists in any medium have achieved such mastery of technique, mastery of experience, mastery of self (three aspects of the same process.) It is the greatest movie I have ever seen.” – Robin Wood The film won the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival. (1954, 124 min., in Japanese w/English subtitles)
