A kemushi project, enhancing the Japanese retail with English subs.

Released a year before Nagisa Oshima unveiled In The Realm of the Senses to international audiences, this acclaimed feature, which tells the same story, was released in Japan. The tale of a young geisha who has an obsessive sexual relationship with a married man was drawn from a true story that shocked Japan in the 1930s. Although produced on a lower budget and never given the attention that Oshima’s film received, this is a powerful work of dark erotica.
