Kwaidan. Masaki Kobayashi. This movie took me awhile to find. Had it on my list for some time but was not easy to get. Official translation is Ghost Story but it is based on Japanese folk tales that are far more than just a ghost tale. Atmospheric shots, Japanese stage acting, expressionistic hints with artificial sets and it consists out of 4 short films. I was happily enjoying this movie and would advice anybody interested in the history of Japanese movies to watch this. (1964)
