Tomu Uchida’s Beautiful Film Love, Thy Name Be Sorrow

Love, Thy Name Be Sorrow is based on a Japanese folktale. It is not a hero’s journey but Joseph Campbell would recognize the narrative elements involving mistaken identity, a trickster spirit, and tragic fatalism. The story is rich and engrossing and centers around the Japanese staple conflict between duty and romance, or protocol and passion, but it is not the narrative that makes Love, Thy Name Be Sorrow remarkable, it is its visual style.
