Shubun - Scandal

Akira KUROSAWA – Japan – 1950


CHF 19.90 / EUR 18.50

On holiday in the snow-covered mountains, young painter Ichiro Aoye (Toshiro Mifune) has a chance meeting with the popular singer Miyako Saijo (Shirley Yamaguchi). After giving her a ride back to the hotel where they are both staying, Ichiro is photographed with Miyako by paparazzi. A magazine creates an exposé of their 'secret romance' based around this photograph and the brooding Ichiro ignites a bitter and dirty libel case in order to restore their honour...

Akira Kurosawa's Scandal, as relevant now as when made, is a pointed attack on the rising power of the press and their practices in the newly-americanised postwar Japan of 1950.
