An entertaining curiosity in black-and-white ‘Scope, Kon Ichikawa’s noirish 1961 comedy concerns a smug philanderer whose current wife and nine former mistresses plot to kill him, letting him know something about their scheme in advance. Like many of the best Ichikawa films (including those with a feminist dimension), this was scripted by his wife, Natto Wado, and was recently rereleased in Japan to great commercial success. In Japanese with subtitles. 103 min.
