Breaking of Branches is Forbidden, 花折り,Hanori Image 2

From Brushed in Light: Calligraphy in East Asian Cinema by Markus Nornes

  • The English title calligraphy for Breaking of Branches is Forbidden is written on a curious, curved strip of white paper. It lays over what appears to be a fusama screen with a lush painting of cherry blossoms on gold leaf. It duplicates the Japanese title just before, except the curved paper is now horizontal to accomodate the English script.
