Mishima designed his life as a drama; in his books he plotted out his life down to the last chapter. A twentieth century writer of the highest acclaim, Yukio Mishima generated more than 30 novels, in addition to numerous plays and movies. He was truly a renaissance man and was not only Japanese, but a world figure. Produced by two of the world's greatest film-makers - George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola and directed by Paul Schrader, Mishima is a haunting, lyrical story of a tortured modern man. Mishima won a special award for Best Artistic Contribution at the Cannes Film Festival 1985.

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
