    • Synopsis
    • A love triangle waiting to happen, set in the mountain hot springs of Izu, Japan, My Darling of the Mountains takes place during the late thirties and brings together three characters, a stunning woman fleeing Tokyo, a handsome bachelor, surrogate father to his nephew, and a blind masseur. Why did the woman leave Tokyo, which of these two men will provide solace? This is a film noir disguised as an elegiac and lyrical period piece, yet it contains much of the signature energy and humor of Ishii's previous films, "The Taste of Tea","Party 7" and the groundbreaking "Sharkskin Man& Peach Hip Girl".
