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.
