The Song Lantern
A self-absorbed young actor humiliates an elderly Noh performer, who then commits suicide. His act of cruelty compels his father to disown him, leading the once promising actor to a life on the streets. But his desire to win back the respect of his father and the affection of the dead actor's daughter pushes him toward a more noble existence. Naruse employed a delicately structured mise-en-scene in this family melodrama, which evokes the work of Josef von Sternberg.The Song Lantern featuring Shôtarô Hanayagi and Eijirō Yanagi is not currently available to stream, rent, or buy but you can add it to your want to see list for updates.
