Considered something of a curiosity in the oeuvre of French filmmaker Max Ophuls, Yoshiwara is the story of a love triangle between a geisha, a Russian military officer and a family servant. An intriguing example of France’s fascination with Japanese culture in the early 20th century—which also led to a craze for Utamaro’s work—this rarely screened classic also features the romantic themes and visual splendor of Ophuls’ better-known works.
