Kenji Mizoguchiís 'The Water Magician'
In July 2007 the Osian's Cinefan Festival of Asian Cinema, New Delhi showed this
rare film accompanied by an extraordinary benshi performance (by a woman benshi
from Japan). The presence of the benshi totally transformed the experience of
this masterpiece of a silent film - that's how the audience must have seen the
film when it was made, not as it happens with silent film screenings these
days, in a kind of deathly silence.
