Inspired by the true-life tale of a broken woman whose hedonistic tryst with a high-class restaurateur resulted in a horrific crime of passion that littered Tokyo headlines in 1936, director Noboru Tanaka’s stark tale of passion has lost none of its power to shock since its original release in 1975. The daughter of a wealthy merchant, beautiful Sada Abe is banished from her wealthy father’s home when he discovers that her virginity was stolen from her in a brutal rape. Subsequently sustaining her existence as a prostitute, Sada soon makes the acquaintance of restaurateur Kichizo — who is immediately captivated by her mysterious beauty. As the couple eschews the outside world in favor of a secluded week of sexual bliss, pleasure soon gives way to obsession — setting into motion a dangerous sequence of events that can only end in tragedy.
