Painter Seiju's (Hatsuo Yamaya) wife has just run away with another man, but he finds solace with a prostitute, Tae (Junko Miyashita), a woman he soon buys free from her employer to live with him. The first night though he ties her up and rapes her - something she against all odds finds pleasure in. Soon, she makes him open up about his relationship to his wife, and he tells her how he, in part for the sake of his art, tied her up in all kinds positions in front of his assistants, how he tortured and humiliated her - and that's an absolute turn-on for Tae, who asks him to do to her everything he did to his wife and go even further.

Seiju couldn't be happier with Tae, but then she starts to behave erratic, and when the doctor examines her, he diagnoses incurable and terminal syphillitic brain damage. Out of the blue, Tae's mother (Sumiko Minami) shows up, blaming Seiju for Tae's condition and trying to blackmail him, and when that won't work (Tae has actually contracted syphillis inside her mum's womb), she asks him to tie her daughter up torture her some more, believing it will drive out an evil spirit. Every now and again, Tae shbows signs of improvement, but her overall condition only worsens, and eventually, Seiju lays her down to die, and lies down besides her, letting her hair cover his face to be with her to the end ...


A film about dominance and submission, sadism and masochism that one probably should not watch if not interested in the subject as such, or if BDSM is nothing but a turn-off. For those who are into it though, this is quite an interesting movie, not so much because of the bondage and torture scenes represented (I'm sure you've seen wilder) but because it's a rare attempt to also capture the essence of the philosophy behind it, without becoming a thesis movie though. Instead, the film takes an almost lyrical approach to its subject matter, and a deliberate slow pace and subtle storytelling derive the topic as such of any cheap sensationalism (which is not necessarily a bad thing though).

In all, a pretty good movie.
