While Watching "When a Woman Ascends the Stairs"...





...I had to wonder if everyone in movies from 1960 was getting laid?
Think Psycho, The Apartment, BUtterfield 8, Breathless, L'aventura...

Yes. Yes they were. The scene you show in this post is very reminiscent of the opening of Psycho. I never noticed it before, but it definitely is - well as far as something can be reminiscent of something that came out around the same time.

Yes Kevyn, absolutely, I noticed the similarities and some of the angles Naruse uses throughout the film are very Hitchcockian, if you can call them that.

Also to the question of whether or not it's sexier if fictional character had sex in BW or colour...wait is that young Tatusya Nakadai? Drool.
