Review: Considered one of Kumashiro’s greatest functions, this dark, intense, erotic drama is an examination concerning the nexus that lies between sexual despair and desire. Junko Miyashita (A Woman Called Sada Abe, Himatsuri), an icon of Japan’s ‘70s erotic films, plays a mysterious hitchhiker selected up by thuggish and macho building individual Kenzo (Renji Ishibashi, Audition) who requires this woman back into his run-down and cramped apartment. Claiming that she actually is running away from an abusive spouse, she shacks up with him. In an useless effort to escape the bleak operating class surroundings, the match engage in obsessive and grueling erotic relationship. Considered among the finest types of the infamous Nikkatsu Roman Porno genre, the prestigious film journal Kinema Jumpo named Miyashita Best Actress for her role and ranked the film as one of the top five releases of 1979.
