Another edition to the influences I intend to include into my character, suggested by Tom Beg, I must admit I was slightly unsure about why I was directed to this film as it takes some time setting the scene, however towards the end all became clear.
Ugetsu Monogatari '1953'
Presented in a manner as eerie as it is heartbreaking, this film is a gorgeous supernatural fable about the folly of men with dreams larger than their abilities and their women who suffer as a result. Genjuro is a potter who longs for wealth and luxury while Tobei , a farmer, dreams of the glories of the samurai to the point of ignoring his wife. Though a war rages around them, they venture to town to sell their wares. Genjuro becomes bewitched by a beautiful though vengeful ghost, while his wife is murdered by a soldier; Tobei becomes a noted warrior, while his wife descends into prostitution after being raped while searching for her husband.
The spirit in this story being my main focus, is a temptress of sorts, and has the ability to entrance men in into mindless love, and eventually death. This can relate to some characteristics of Yuki-Onna. I felt taking screen caps of certain moments, such as poses, lighting, scenery and expressions she pulled could help as a reference point, in order to capture the eerie, manipulative, seductive atmosphere.
