reVenge oF a KabuKi aCtor  |  Yukinojō henge

JApan 1963  |   director: ICHIKAWA Kon 

Who would have thought that Nakamura Yukinojō, leading kabuki actor in female roles, is in a mean time also a skilled swordsman that is waiting to revenge the death of his parents? This movie is appealing especially to lovers of traditional Japanese theatre and esthetics. The audience comes to an illusion that they are watching kabuki play in real settings thanks to the use of theater lighting techniques and wide shots, creating an illusion of an empty theatre stage. Leading actor Hasegawa Kazuo was himself actor of female roles (so called onnagata) in kabuki theatre and this role is a peak of his film actor career. Moreover, Hasegawa has played the same role in three sequels (1935-6) directed by Kinugasa Teinosuke while he was still young. In the 1963 year movie Ichikawa made a wonderful use of the contrast of pure girlish beauty of the young wakao Ayako in the role of a girl who falls in love with Yukinojō – and his ripe “feminity”.
