1958 Japanese film directed by Kon Ichikawa and adapted from the Yukio Mishima novel The Temple of the Golden Pavilion. Told in an intricate flashback structure, Enjo dramatizes the psychological collapse of Goichi (Raizo Ichikawa), a young Buddhist acolyte from a dysfunctional family who arrives at a Kyoto temple--the Golden Pavilion--for further study. Goichi is haunted by two events--the discovery of his psychologically abusive mother’s infidelity, and the effect of the revelation upon his father.
