Classy if not brilliant slice of solid pinku sleaze
I only heard about this one a while ago while browsing for some 80's trash to watch, though not superb it was still worth it. An effective little pinku affair, it tells of a lovely young teacher who heads off to teach fencing in a school in the countryside, only to run into a good deal of the expected rape and abuse. The story has a few twists and turns and for the first half a mysterious feel, atmospheric and well shot with a fine location, its compelling stuff even before it gets down to the requisite bondage and abuse action. Ren Masaki is pretty strong as the lead, a determined and sympathetic character with enough backbone and genuine likability that her plight is fairly affecting, while the various dirty scummers around her are convincing too, with motivations fairly plausible if thoroughly corrupt. The film is fairly mild given the amazing title, but the film still has a pleasing quantity of sleazy abuse, packing hot wax fun, boob slapping and erotic fencing in amongst the more predictable rapey shenanigans, though the use of beaver blockers rather spoils a few scenes. I hadn't realised that penetration shots were banned full stop in Japan, making a scene involving a stick and the leading ladies behind a lot less gnarly than it could have been, but on the whole things are still pretty fun and the film even makes time for one or two moments of tender eroticism that come off pretty hot, with the final moments being particularly striking. At less than 70 minutes in length this is a good watch if slightly unspectacular, probably recommended if you like the genre. I'm woefully inexperienced when it comes to this sort of film and I'm sure there are many more impressive titles in the pinku realm, but this one is still pretty neato fun with its fine production values and sleazy kicks. Cool on the whole but not earth shattering.
