 Program Note
 YUASA Yoshiko, a great translator of Russian literature and drama, and CHUJO Yuriko, a feminist novelist and a great activist of post-war democratic literature movement, left their huge marks on the Japanese history of modern literature. The master of female pink film, HAMANO Sachi, cinematized these two Showa era’s writers’ love and farewell. Yuriko, a sudden literary idol with her first novel written in her early age, and a magazine editor Yoshiko are attracted to each other from the very first meeting. Unlike Yoshiko who openly reveals her identity as a lesbian, Yuriko who married a well-known scholar can’t easily leave him even though she had already decided to do so in her mind. The conflict between Yuriko and her husband is not just because of her relationship with Yoshiko. The film elaborately describes an early modern female intellectual’s disappointment about modern romance and marriage and their limitation. The film ends when Yuriko visits Yoshiko after she broke up with her husband, but this scene implies that their future won’t be bright. With the relationship of Yoshiko and Yuriko, the film represents the world of Japanese female intellectuals, who went through turbulent times of early modernity and war while dreaming of a new world that only brought despair to their hopeful dreams.
