Odd intro to a great filmmaker
6 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kurosawa's debut film is something of a compromising mess. Part "pinku" film and part self-referential art film, it's clear he stayed true on his commission of delivering a straight up erotic film while sneaking in bouts of Godard-like pop moments and sly evocations of Hitchcock. The story: two female friends, one bored by continuous sex with her boyfriend and the other just bored, spy across the street from their apartments and observe an older woman forcing her son into incest. They devise a plan to spring him from the confines of this life, thus sending the film into an airy series of foiled freedom attempts and long shot rolls in the hay. It doesn't always come together, but Kurosawa's deviant swipes of humor and his obvious love for Godardian snatches of cinema (the two women staring directly at the camera and posting a paper on the wall that reads "charge!", as well as the endless names of classic films on the background of one apartment) create a slowly endearing attitude.
