This particular consideration of mutual possession which approaches and then transcends death is well-paced and, within story possibilities, -acted as well. Full Review

The cinematography, mise-en-scène, and music respond to the solid and unitary idea of the film. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- Unsanitised, worryingly convincing in its sadomasochistic detail, this is seriously provocative cinema, a telling reminder of what it really means to be dangerous. Full Review

Aug 29, 2009
Rating: 4/5 -- It was made 33 years ago but Nagisa Oshima's doomed lust classic doesn't look in the least bit dusty. Quite the opposite. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Declaring yourself bored by a movie full of explicit sex may sometimes mark you out as a dreary pseudo-sophisticate, but in this case it's fair enough. Full Review

Oshima has crafted an uncompromisingly hardcore study in sexual obsession, which also serves as an allegory of the insularity and madness of Japan's phallocentric, self-destructive imperialism in the build-up to its explosive wartime climax Full Review

Product Description:

NTSC/Region 0. Based on one of Japan's most notorious scandals, this film tells the story of an ex-prostitute who becomes involved in an obsessive love affair with the master of the household, the story between Sada and Kichi. Sada is employed as maid servant when Kichi is her master. What starts as a casual diversion escalates into a passion that holds no bounds. Banned at it's premiere at the New York Film Festival in 1976, this long-awaited erotic masterpiece has never before been available on home video until 1990.
