Secret Chronicle: Prostitution Market

Maruhi: joro ichiba

Directed by Chûsei Sone
Japan, 1972


Sone’s film is a comical look at a Tokyo brothel in the 1800s starring Yuko Katagiri as a young prostitute who learns her craft through a series of funny, often bizarre encounters with clients including an immense, clumsy sumo wrestler and a man with a most unusual skin condition.
