Surely one of the most visually arresting films of the 70s, drenched with lovely seacoast scenery & spectacular vistas. It all meshes brilliantly with a disturbing story that gets under your skin in a way that's hard to describe. Having read the novel, I can say that the film is extremely faithful to Mishima, and even sharpens his themes (how fascism is born, the dysfuntion of family, the fruitless search for perfection and purity). The child actors are extremely well-cast. Definitely worth a look.
