If this is your idea of a romantic meeting place I don't think things will work out between us.
There isn't much online about the Japanese drama Kiri aru jyoji and we aren't going to be able to add much more. Well, except for this incredible promo poster, which we're sure has never appeared on any website before. So that's something at least. The movie premiered in 1959, came from Tokyo's venerable movie studio Shochiku Company Limited, and was directed by Minoru Shibuya. It starred Mariko Okada, a leading figure of the Japanese New Wave and one of the great stars of her era (and this era, actually, as she's still working steadily). Hopefully one day we'll track down this movie. For now—only the poster.
