(1980) dir Seijun Suzuki w/Yoshio Harada, Naoko Ôtani [144 min; 35mm]
Named the best film of the 1980s in a poll of Japanese film critics, ZIGEUNERWEISEN takes its title from a recording of violin music by Pablo de Sarasate. The piece haunts the film’s two main characters: Aochi, an uptight professor at a military academy, and his erstwhile colleague Nakasago, who is now a wild-haired wanderer and possible murderer. The movie’s plot is a metaphysical ghost story involving love triangles, doppelgangers, and a blurred line between the worlds of the living and the dead. Intended for mature audiences.

Subtitled trailer not available
