The link between Tanizaki Jun’ichiro and the history of Japanese cinema begins with the origin of the “seventh art.” His interest saw him composing theoretical essays on cinema and actively cooperating with the newborn Taikatsu film company. His interest in cinema dissolved further after he moved to Kansai as a consequence of the 1923 Kanto earthquake, but his literary universe continued to naturally flow into the world of movies. More than forty film adaptations of his works can be counted, making him one of the most highly regarded writers in Japan. Among the best results, Manji, filmed in 1964 by Masumura Yasuzo, shows how the literary work is enriched by the director’s three-dimensional scenes.
