Storyline

An offbeat study of the adult games that men and women play filtered through the actions of two seemingly innocent Japanese school kids, Satsuki and Takuya, two 17-year-olds who first meet practising kendo but later fall head over heels in love. They then discover the ways they can most exuberantly express their love for one another, no matter how perverse. It all starts with Takuya stealing Satsuki's belongings like socks, secretly photographing her beautiful legs, and... When Satsuki discovers this, she takes revenge by dominating him and forcing him to watch her having sex with a schoolmate... Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

This movie is interesting in a bizarre way. While it would be categorized as being an S&M film, it really isn't. It's really just about a really depressed teenager named Hidaka (Mizuhashi Kenji). Her is a nerd and is short, but somehow or another, a foxy girl in his sword fighting class, Satsuki (Tsugumi), falls in love with him. After they have sex for the first time, she finds out that he is really in love with her because- not because of her- but because of the smell of her feet and the noise her pee makes when she excretes (!). But does she break up with him? No, she just decides to let him give her foot a slimy slurp and listen to her as she carries out her extremely slutty "appointments" with her "normal" boyfriends. This leads to a hugely bizarre ending that not only (SPOILERS) gives new meaning to the expression "go jump off a bridge", but leaves room for a sequel! Not that I wouldn't watch it, I would. But this movie is strange, because these two have some really strange connection but carry it out in a completely different way. Think "Secretary" Japanese style, and not nearly as extreme. I recommend this film for a few watches, as you do care for the characters and situations at hand, but don't go in expecting gore or laughs, or something normal for that matter.

8/10
