What happens when the entire Shaw Brothers Scenario Group, Direction Group, and Cinematography Group collaborate on a single exotic film? The result is a timeless and titillating tale of the immoral private lives of the royal court’s high officials. All the bed and body hopping is not exclusive to the family, either. Their maids and servants get involved as well, leading to flesh, fibs, and suicide, among other things. Taken all together, this is an all-time classic of sumptuous sexuality.
One of cult filmmaker Hisayasu Sato’s most disturbing and powerful pinku-eiga films, taking the soft-core sex genre into the perverse psycho-Sadean world of the Anglo-American literary trend often referred to as “splatterpunk.” Following cosmetic surgery to enhance her breasts, an office worker is raped. The rapist’s son, after setting his distinctly Oedipal gaze on his father’s busty victim, locates her and they begin an ill-fated sadomasochistic affair that leads to a bloody killing spree. Needless to say, this is definitely not entertainment for the squeamish. Shiina Ito stars with Masahiro Yoshida, Shoichiro Sakata and Mami Ichinose.
