Zigeunerweisen, from Japanese B-movie auteur Seijun Suzuki, was his self-funded return to moviemaking after a long hiatus. This film was the first of what would later be known as the Taisho Trilogy. This series of movies is set during Japan's Taisho period, a time in the 1920s and 30s similar to America's Roaring Twenties. The title refers to a haunting classical violin piece with a famous recording error. This movie is the story of a love triangle between Aochi, a professor of German, Nakasago, his nomadic colleague, and Sono, the object of the two men's affections. Throughout the course of the story, Nakasago goes on several excursions, leaving his wife and child behind to await his return. While on one of Nakasago's tours, Aochi and Nakasago sleep with each other's wives. These infidelities cause both men to reevaluate themselves and their relationships with the women they love.
