The Masseurs and a Woman
Directed by Hiroshi Shimizu • 1938 • Japan
A pair of blind masseurs, an enigmatic city woman, a lonely man and his ill-behaved nephew, THE MASSEURS AND A WOMAN is made up of crisscrossing miniature studies of love and family at a remote resort in the mountains. With delicate and surprising humor, Hiroshi Shimizu paints a timeless portrait of loneliness and the human need to connect.
