Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters
Klasikoak

Portrait of the acclaimed Japanese author and playwright Yukio Mishima, which investigates the inner turmoil and contradictions of a man who attempted an impossible harmony between self, art, and society. Taking place on Mishima's last day, when he famously committed public suicide by means of the harakiri rite, the film is punctuated by flashbacks to the writer's life as well as by gloriously stylised evocations of his fictional works.

BIOGRAPHY

Paul Schrader (Grand Rapids, USA. 1946) sold his first script in 1975, The Yakuza (Sydney Pollack), and the next year wrote the screenplay for Taxi Driver (Martin Scorsese, Golden Palm at Cannes and four Academy Award nominations), the success of which led to his 1978 directorial debut with Blue Collar (1978). For Scorsese, he has written Raging Bull (1980), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) and Bringing Out the Dead (1999). Worthy of note among his works as a director are American Gigolo (1980), Affliction (1997), which earned James Coburn the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award, and First Reformed (2017), candidate for the Best Original Screenplay Academy Award. Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters received the Best Artistic Contribution Award at Cannes.
