NOW DIGITALLY REMASTERED.

The film emphasises the relationship between the maskmaker and her mask. It experiments with the visual and dramatic potential in Noh and in the mask, moving toward abstraction as the mask appears and reappears in the reflection of a tree, its original substance.

The soundtrack is filled with wood sounds - tools against wood, and the percussion of wooden clappers.

"Beautifully done, subtle, elegant, and full of quiet meanings." - Peter Grilli, Japan Film Center, New York.
