    Variant title in English: The white heron. Maria Rodriguez notes regarding "Kinugasa's 108th film. The idealism of this movie, represented by the young lovers, is doomed from the very beginning by the previous commitments and circumstances in which the two lovers had allowed themselves to become involved.
