Because of the boyhood trauma of seeing his mother make love to another man in the presence of his dying father, Mizoguchi becomes a hopeless stutterer. Taunted by his schoolmates, he feels utterly alone untill he becomes an acolyte at a famous temple in Kyoto, where he develops an all-consuming obsession with the temple’s beauty. This powerful story of dedication and sacrifice brings together Mishima’s preoccupations with violence, desire, religion and national history to dazzling effect.
