Kinuyo Tanaka’s final work as a director evokes the golden age of Japanese cinema with a large-scale costume drama.

Produced by the independent studio Ninjin Kurabu, Love Under the Crucifix centres on the forbidden romance between Ogin (Ineko Arima), daughter of a famous tea master, and Ukon (Tatsuya Nakadai), a married samurai.The shogunate’s prohibition of Ukon’s Christian faith forces the lovers to fight against the prejudices of an oppressive society while persisting in their mutual devotion.

Based on a novel by Kon Toukou, Kinuyo Tanaka's film depicts the struggle of Ogin surviving from a female perspective and portrays the beauty of the Momoyama culture of the 16th century.
