The Water Magician 1933

Taki no Shiraito is a very independent young woman with a famous water juggling act in a travelling carnival troupe. She falls in love with an orphaned carriage driver Kinya Murakoshi, and pledges to put him through law school in Tokyo. She always encloses money in her letters to him, until one hard winter there is no work to be found.

Kenji Mizoguchi has the best strong female characters of almost any silent director, but the pacing was all wrong on this one.
