I got nothing but vague interest. When a Woman Ascends the Stairs is one of the least compelling movie titles on my to-see list. It always makes me envision the movie as: "...she reaches the second floor. The End."

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

A great storyteller of the place in women in Japanese society-- A Woman Ascends the Stairs explores the emotional terrain and class structure of the Ginza bar world and Flowing takes brings us into a struggling geisha house and what that means for the livelihood of the geishas and their daughters.  Heartbreaking stuff, I think, especially Flowing.
