Miss Hokusai (2015)
Based on what I can find this story was taken from a manga from the mid-1980s. I don't know if it was ever translated into English, or even the title of it.
The movie is a series of vignettes. Most involve O-Ei interacting with others, including her father, a couple of his proteges, her younger sister, her mother, and patrons. If the movie has a thread then I failed to find it. I feel as though there is some background information I am missing. The movie is very beautiful to look at but it feels incomplete.
