Coma society
17 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

In view of this film our society seems to be frozen, cold as ice! The glittering world is only a facade above all soulish depths and perversions that lie beneath! "Tokyo Decadence" tells the story about a sensitive young girl who decides to serve the desires of the decadent Japanese high society! Day in, day out she has to do with cocaine sniffing pervs and guys with the sickest sexual phantasies. Slowly, but surely she becomes the ball of their obsessions, but at the end she breaks from the unbearable pressure... Like so many other Asians films from the 1990s "Tokyo Decadence" combines its gross story with elegant pictures. This flick also contains some real explicit scenes of S&M or sexual role play, so people with a too conservative mind will certainly be offended! However, those who can bear some explicit representations of erotic beyond normal will make another fine experience of 1990´s great Asian cinema!
