Eclipse Series 26: Silent Naruse. Mikio Naruse ("Floating Clouds," "When a Woman Ascends the Stairs") was one of the most popular directors in Japan, a crafter of exquisite melodramas, mostly about women confined by their social and domestic circumstances. Though often compared with Yasujiro Ozu and Kenji Mizoguchi for his style and treatment of characters, Naruse was a unique artist, making heartrending, brilliantly photographed and edited films about the impossible pursuit of happiness. From the outset of his career, with his silent films of the early '30S, Naruse zeroed in on the lives of the kinds of peoplE -- Geisha, housewives, waitresses -- who would continue to fascinate him for the next three decades. Though he made two dozen silent films, only five remain in existence; these works -- poignant, dazzlingly made dramas all -- are collected here, newly restored and on DVD for the first time, and featuring optional new scores by noted musicians Robin Holcomb and Wayne Horvitz. The five-disc set includes "Flunky, Work Hard (Koshiben ganbare)" (1931), "No Blood Relation (Nasanu naka)"(1932), "Apart from You (Kimi to wakarete)" (1933), "Every-Night Dreams (Yogoto no yume)" (1933) and "Street Without End (Kagirinaki hodo)" (1934). $44.95.
