This is a very melodramatic, operatic film of forbidden love, filled with a rich pallet of colors and lush cinematography. Really what matters is the artistry in this film, it's a film that's calling out for much better treatment than the poor VHS release I watched. Also, you can't say that the visuals are the only good thing here, because the actors are so incredibly passionate and convincing; it's easy to get taken in by the film. Believe me, Senso is probably more impressive than I'm making it sound. And would be even more so if we got, say, a Criterion Blu-ray... Anyway, I give it my recommendation.
