Hello everyone,

Just a little question for mizoguchian specialists : a french critic,
Jean Douchet, wrote some ten years ago that Mizoguchi's Yoru no
onnatachi, released in 1948, was in some way influenced by italian
neo-realism. But if I'm not wrong, and Oshima Nagisa confirmed that in
his "taikenteki sengo eigaron", these italian movies had been all
released in Japan from 1949 to 1950...
I was just wondering if Mizoguchi ever had the chance to see these
movies before shooting his own Yoru no onnatachi... Could someone help
me for that ? Thanks a lot.
