Summary
"[A] portrait of acclaimed Japanese author and playwright Yukio Mishima [that] 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 seppuku, the film is punctuated by extended flashbacks to the writer's life, as well as by gloriously stylized evocations of his fictional works"--Container
