Adapted from Japanese literary master Junichiro Tanizaki’s famous novel of the same title with a script written by
Japanese film master Shindo Kaneto, Manji refers to the four-pronged Buddhist swastika that symbolises prosperity,
and is a metaphor for the four leads of this film.
Sonoko lives with her lawyer husband Kotaro in a state of social respectability and private ennui until she meets
Mitsuko while attending a local art school. Spellbound by Mitsuko’s beauty, Sonoko starts a fiery affair with Mitsuko,
who is already engaged to Eijiro. As Mitsuko’s beauty bewitches Kotaro, the four get deliriously entangled in a web
of desire, exploitation, jealousy and suicide.
