This sequel to the Taxing Woman takes on the corruption of politician, religious organization, and yakuza.
Ryoko (Nobuko Miyamoto) is on to a case concerning religious organization, and gangs concerning Jiageya ( A group of gangs who buys homes by using violent means so that real estate can be rebuilt and sold for a profit ). The case eventually leads to corrupt politicians. Ryoko enters the religious organization in question as its member, and finds out that its headquarter has a hidden room containing evidence of corruption.
The movie takes into account many topics that was suspected of being the case in society back in the '80s Japan. Itami connected the dots taking artistic license and turned it into a movie.
This movie is more entertaining than the first Marusa No Onna. The corruption is on a bigger scale, and investigation is more sophisticated.
This is one of the most entertaining movie by director Itami, and is recommended for viewing.
