Storyline

The story of two men, one middle aged one mid twenties, who make friends and exchange cigarettes and stories of their sex lives, unaware they have unwittingly exchanged partners. The story, told in flashbacks, as the two men travel through the night on a motorcycle, is loaded with highly charged eroticism. Sex and violence are juxtaposed against the drabness of the men's everyday lives, effectively blurring the line between what is real and what is fantasy. Founded on the well-known myth of furtive sexual gropers on the rush-hour Tokyo commuter trains, Tandem is a low-key masterpiece of Japanese Pink Cinema. Written by Clint Weiler

sex action of a rather dubious nature
13 August 2008 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Pretty grubby example of Japanese 'pink' cinema. Not only is much of the sex action of a rather dubious nature but the print gives the appearance of being transferred from a bootleg video. It is probably the low budget that makes for this look and it must be said that the very grubbiness of the look does seem much in keeping with such sequences as that of feeling up a young woman on a train and a virtual rape. Perhaps more disturbing in both these scenes is that the girl on the train, far from being mortified begins to revel in the action even taking the initiative in the end and similarly the 'rape' victim also eventually warms to the vigour. This is a rather strange movie in which the two male protagonists meet by accident and then proceed to tell each other of their sexual escapades, so I suppose it is possible they are embellishing their tales, but it is never quite certain.
