    Un bărbat care devine atît de lasciv încît cumpără un copiator uriaș prin utilizarea economiei soții lui. O femeie care devine atît de lascivă încît arată un chilot cu imprimeu de leopard desfacîndu-și picioarele ei la o cafenea."Las oscuras primaveras" descrie adulterul lor dar vizionarea filmului asemenea este ridicol, nu-i așa? // 余りに欲情しすぎて妻の貯金で巨大コピー機を買う男。余りに欲情しすぎて食堂で豹柄パンティを見せつける女。今作は彼らの不倫を描いた作品だがそんなの馬鹿げてるとは思わない?
