Blind sculptor Michio (Eiji Funakoshi) is obsessed with model Aki (Mako Midori) and desperately wants to make a sculpture of her. Thing is, to really make this sculpture, he has to touch her and feel her everywhere, since he is blind - and understandably, Aki isn't very keen on that. So Michio kidnaps her with the help of his mother (Noriko Sengoku) and locks her into his studio that's filled with some giant sculptures, mostly of naked bopdies. Aki's horrified of course, and at first she tries her utmost to escape, but with limited success, so eventually she decides on a different approach and charms her way into Michio's heart ... much to the dismay of his mother. Eventually, Aki tries to play Michio and his mother against each other, which ends in Michio accidently killing his mother. Still, Aki doesn't manage to get away. So ultimately, Aki gives in to whatever Michio is up to ... and more and more, she even starts to identify with him, so much so that she eventually gets blind herself - and that's when things start to really get weird out of control ...

 

Despite being however loosely based on a story by Japan's prime horror writer Edogawa Rampo, this is a deeply disturbing and disturbingly perverted movie that from today's point of view would most certainly not pass the political correctness test - but then again, this is not just a piece of depraved sex cinema, as it's elegantly directed, its sets and art direction are outstanding and put to excellent use, and as sexually provocative as the script is on first impression, it's also well-written, offering plenty of insight into an obsession gone horribly wrong (something also mirrored in the set design), and has an intellectual ring to it.

Most certainly recommended - if not necessarily to the faint-hearted or the political correctness advocates.
