not good porno,but beautiful drama

Author: akihiko torimaru (badass0514) from Tokyo, Japan
18 March 2002

This film was made for Nikkatsu roman porno(not hardcore,off course shot in 35mm).I went to see some kind of erotic movie with couple of guys wearing highschool uniform in Mitaka(on the outskirts of Tokyo). We were shocked after seeing LOVE HOTEL.It was not porno we expected,just beautiful and sad story,great cinematography and good acting!It's just great movie! I saw it again 10 years after,still great to me.Story is not so twisted,written by Takashi Ishii(GONIN),despaired man meets part-time prostitute just before his suicide and sad story starts.

Shinji Soumai who recently passed away is one of most respected director in Japan. It is very very hard to find copy in foreign,but I believe it's worthy,if you like aftertaste like SHELTERING SKY.
