JAPAN | 90 minutes | 1964

Post-war Japan: prostitutes are forming gangs as a survival strategy. Beware the one with feelings, and woe unto the man who gets close. A masterpiece!
Seijun Suzuki makes his own Roman Porno (the infamous genre out of the Nikkatsu studios). The result is a masterful work in equal measures provocative and painful, in which he settles his scores with the army, the war and Japan itself. While authority is intimidating, nothing can contain it now. Especially not a codified genre like erotic film. Starring Jô Shishido.
