An Oyama (a male actor who plays female roles in Kabuki) works out an intricate plot of.....REVENGE.
Meanwhile, since it is set in the Edo period our hero, played by Kazuo Hasegawa, lives as a female even off stage. As you can imagine, there's a lot of subtle humour since seemingly *everybody* is more or less enchanted with "Yuki." It's more a thriller than an action film, but the stylized sets, choreography, and acting won me over. It also had me taking a little Wiki-walk to find out more about Kabuki, and the Oyama.

A stylized psychodrama which reveals itself slowly. Not for those who want constant action, but deeper character & motivation than Crouching Tiger type films. 4/5 stars

This bland and slow story may not appeal to everyone. I found myself looking at the clock a lot and not caring for any of the characters.
