Movie Reviews

This is not in the realm of the senses!
joe gallagher | 06/13/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is based on the same true story as IN THE REALM OF THE SENSES. This version is like a B porno movie with lots of acting and movement which is covered and hidden by a kimona. Even worse, the DVD goes in a jerky assembly of still shots rather than a true "motion picture." The acting, costumes and sets are less visually appealing than IN THE REALM OF THE SENSES. If you want to experience a truely erotic tale of a woman with unquenchable lust buy In THE REALM OF THE SENSES, otherwise... save your money."
An interesting contrast to the oshima original

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Though less arty than the oshima classic, this erotic tale of l'amour fou is a stunning film in its own right. You get much more of the lead characters life. Its beautifully made, well acted. It's also less hermetic than oshima's masterpiece, making less artistic, but a little easier to watch and enjoy. Higherly recommended for fans of classic Japanese erotic cinema!"
