Murahashi meets Chieko (Kyoko Aizome) at the dentist, falls in love with her almost immediately, but is too shy to approach her. While sitting in the dentist's chair next to hers, anesthesia kicks in and he starts to fantasize about Chieko, how she is undressed and groped by the dentist and his nurses.

But it doesn't stop here, in another daydream, the dentist strips and mistreats Chieko on the dancefloor of a nightclub. Murahashi wants to persuade her to escape with him to wherever, but she only answers she's much too amoral for him.

Yet another daydream shows Murahashi on the balcony of her apartment, while the dentist tortures and rapes Chieko. Despite his best efforts, Murahashi is unable to enter the apartment, but when the dentist has gone to sleep, Chieko flees (in the nude), but wherever she goes she seemingly can't escape the dentist, who is now revealed to be a vampire. Finally Murahashi comes to her rescue and is ready to fight for her, but she instead returns to the dentist via a carwash - and still in the nude.

In the next daydream, the vampiric dentist chases tnude Chieko through a deserted department store. She stabs a night watchman and can subsequently escape to the streets of Tokyo, where she meets Murahashi - who stabs her to death, with none of the passersby taking too much notice.

Murahashi wakes up from anasthesia when Chieko just leaves. He catches up with her, invites her to a boat trip, then abandons ship when it's at full speed - leaving her to the dentist/vampire who has hidden below deck ... so was it all just a daydream or something more?

 

An at times shot-for-shot remake of director Tetsuji Takechi's own Daydream from 1964, which was among the first pink movies produced by a big studio in Japan, and one of the most interesting and stylish - and of course it was a big scandal. And while the new version cannot compete with the original in terms of elegance, it tries to make up for this with the inclusion of hardcore sex scenes - which even make sense in the context of the movie, even if some could have done with a bit of trimming to keep the action flowing more smoothly.

While the new Daydream might be no competition to the original film (and of course also lacks its originality), it holds its own quite well on its own terms, a delirious journey into sex and violence, domination and submission, featuring many an intersting, compelling and weirdly erotic scene. No masterpiece perhaps, but definitely worth a look.
