A Wife's Heart

Hideko Takamine plays a young woman trying to raise enough money to open her own coffee shop; when her family takes the money to fund her sister's wedding, she arranges a loan, but her husband grows jealous of the loan officer. Featuring Toshiro Mifune in his second and last role in a Naruse film, A Wife's Heart “shows the family system to be so rigid that there can be no variation” (Joseph L. Anderson and Donald Richie, The Japanese Film).
