An obsession with the life and works of the Marquis de Sade leads a depraved, 1920s-era Japanese count down the path of tragedy and self-destruction in director Akio Jissoji’s lavish erotic drama. In order to impress his wealthy, jaded friends, the decadent nobleman hires thieves, prostitutes, and other undesirables to reenact scenes from the notorious writer’s most revered works. In time, however, simply watching the performances isn’t enough to fulfill the nobleman’s fantasies. Threatening the performers with death should they refuse to make love to his wife while he watches, the nobleman sinks deeper and deeper into his fantasy world of debauchery, even as his degenerate actions threaten dire consequences for all involved.
A man with a troubled past including incest with a younger sister and the murder of a woman travels to an isolated countryside town in Nagano. There a local who mistakes him for a famous television actor shows him the town’s sites, including a strip bar in which the performers remove Heian era costumes. The film’s narrative is in an allegorical and disjointed manner with references to Buddhist concepts. The title bears no relation to the story, and there are no masturbation scenes in the film. Loosely based on Kenji Nakagami’s short story Aragami.
The Movie opens with a green-tinted prologue in which police inspector Ji De (Yueh Hua) investigates a murder apparently committed by a prostitute named Ainu (Lily Ho Li-li). Flashbacks reveal that Ainu was among a number of maidens kidnapped by brigands under the orders of regal, lesbian Madam Chun (Betty Pei Ti). Although the girl’s virginity is auctioned off in the usual manner to a group of rich deviants, Chun is attracted to her beauty and pluck and takes Ainu under her wing.
Soon deeply infatuated, she imparts all of her martial arts skills to the girl, who goes on to become the establishment’s number one attraction. When a second murder occurs, Ji deduces that Ainu is eliminating the men who raped her years earlier but his hands are tied, as he has no concrete evidence and the suspect enjoys greatprivilege with the upper echelons of society. So great is her protection that Ainu even secretly visits the policeman and openly admits to the crimes but nothing the lawman says to the next targets on her list will dissuade them fromcontinuing their dalliances.
