How was the film?  I'm looking forward to seeing it.
There is a great resource at the Japan Foundation for finding translations:
A search there showed translations in German, Spanish, Polish, Italian, Hungarian and Czech, as well as English.
Here is the citation for the English version:
"Villon's Wife" translated by Donald Keene, in New Directions 15, 1955. pages: 176-195
