Directed by: HORIKAWA Tonko

One thousand years ago in the Heian, Murasaki Shikibu wrote the "Tales Of Genji".
Containing many characters and descriptions, the complicated story had not been
adapted to the big screen in a satisfactory manner. Until now.
This is Toei's
big-budget remake of the classic story "Genji Mono-gatari" (Tales Of Genji), the
world's first novel, and a fascinating story about the life and loves of a wealthy playboy,
Genji, and the numerous women in his life. This movie is more than a simple story
come to life.
It is a major work of art, and has some of the most spectacular
cinematography ever created. A beautiful world of incense and imagination,romance
A true work of art, and a worthy depiction of the world's first novel, this is
a film not to be missed!
