3.5 Say what you will about Ishii's work (the excessive violence – particularly towards women – is mighty hard to stomach) but there's no denying that this guy knows how to frame a shot. His use of colour, light and composition is at times outstanding. I can't decide whether he elevates trash cinema to the point of art or lowers artistic cinema to the point of trash. He bloody loves that name Nami.
dvd i bought first time of my life because i was fascinated by the Japanese original title "Shindemoii". its translated directly like "I never mind if I die(for this desire or love)" .
this film wasn't defeated by its name.
there's something innocent,living above the moral,words,even time.erotic film(like In the Realm of the Senses) often has the scene of playing kids,in this film everything rewinds to original sin.
