We would like to invite you all to watch this Japanese movie in original language with English subtitles.
Akasen Chitai (Street of Shame) is the last masterpiece of Kenji Mizoguchi, filmed in Protected content , starring Machiko Kyô, Aiko Mimasu, and Ayako Wakao.

Storyline (from IMDB):
Five prostitutes work at Dreamland, in Tokyo's Yoshiwara district. As the Diet considers a ban on prostitution, the women's daily dramas play out. Each has dreams and motivations. Hanae is married, her husband unemployed; they have a young child. Yumeko, a widow, uses her earnings to raise and support her son, who's now old enough to work and care for her. The aging Yorie has a man who wants to marry her. Yasumi saves money diligently to pay her debt and get out; she also has a suitor who wants to marry her, but she has other plans for him. Mickey seems the most devil-may-care, until her father comes from Kobe to bring her news of her family and ask her to come home.
!!!Note!!! This movie is in "Japanese with English subtitles”
