So Soft, So Cunning, considered one of Fujita’s best films, is “a somber look at family life in contemporary Japan”, while Tenshi o yūwaku is a serious portrayal of the problems faced by a young couple (Momoe Yamaguchi and Tomokazu Miura) in the suburbs.
Violent Streets covers standard yakuza ground: the retired gangster forced back into the crime world. A beef brewing within Tokyo’s underworld sets off a series of spectacular violence headlined by some of the genre’s best actors: Noboru Ando, Bunta Sugawara, Akira Kobayashi, and Tetsuro Tanba. Gosha’s skillful delivery prevents the film from losing any sense of seriousness, even at its most violent.
A businessman’s son, Kwok Chuen(Chung Wa/Tsung Hua), heads to Denmark to take care of a deal for a movie studio. In Denmark, he meets and falls “in lust” with actress Ann Charolette(Birte Tove). Later on, Kwok Chuen finds out that Ann Charolette is a soft-core porn actress and she has no plans of leaving the industry or having a relationship with Kwok Chuen. Kwok Chuen later meets Ms. Fang(Li Ching, not to be confused with actress Ching Li, Ching Miao’s daughter), a Chinese woman living in Denmark. Will he succeed in seducing her, winning her love and her hand in marriage?
It’s the evening before the day all brothels must be shut-down, according to the new law, in 1958. At the Kofukuya’s (literally, the house that sells happiness), five prostitutes decide to celebrate the day. Erotism, drama, and comedy mix as each hour, and a different event passes, in which all the women’s stories come to the surface.
The movie takes place in four periods: the first, a group of female Christians are raped and crucified in 18th century Japan. The second deals with a man who beats his cheating wife and her lover. The third, and the most interesting, is set in WW2 where inquisition soldiers torture, rape and abuse female traitors, and the fourth story deals with soldiers raping and abusing suspected female spies.
