Yet another soft core sex flick from Japan. Yet again filled with perverse goings-on and shady characters. Yet again about a woman discovering and becoming comfortable with her sexuality. Yet again all men are sex-starved pigs and women the (often) unwilling objects of their desires. Then why the decent rating? Hard to say really.
A nurse is assaulted and nearly raped by some hoodlums at her hospital. She manages to escape and runs home for comfort, only to discover her husband cheating on her. She then flees her home only to have the bad luck of being hit by a car. And then, as if things weren't bad enough, she wakes up just in time to find herself being molested by the man that hit her. Talk about a bad day.
After the initial attack, the man keeps her captive and a classic case of Stolkhome syndrome kicks in, with her willingly giving into his advances. During this period viewers are treated to some graphic, if fogged-out, sex scenes that are a welcome contrast to the earlier scenes of sexual violence.
Despite myself, I did enjoy this film. I started for the kinky sex, but ended staying with it for the relationship between the characters, both of whom are victims of social ill; the woman that of physical, the man that of emotional. They just want a happy ending and by the end so do you. It is very much an urban fairy tale.
The film is in no way a technical marvel. It is a low-budget effort, but the makers use what they have well enough that it doesn't get in the way very often.
Despite being pretty slow in parts and fairly graphic sexually, there is a quality story being told here.
