In a late-19th-century Japanese village, peasant Seki (Kazuko Yoshiyuki) and her lover, Toyoji (Tatsuya Fuji), plot to kill Seki's husband and throw his body in a well, but the consequences of their crime exact a heavy toll on the guilt-ridden couple. A police inspector and the ghost of the husband aren't helping matters, either. Japanese auteur Nagisa Oshima won Best Director at the 1978 Cannes Film Festival for this spooky romantic film.
