Suffering of Ninko

Ninkô no junan | 仁光の受難

Directed by Norihiro Niwatsukino
Japan, 2016


Ninko is a virtuous Buddhist monk who’s embarrassed to discover that he’s irresistible to many women (and some men). After a particularly troubling encounter with a masked woman, he undertakes a journey to “purify” himself, hoping that this will equip him to rebuff sexual advances.
