A Pink Film Which Works
29 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Generally less explicit than films of this genre made outside of Japan owing to restrictions at the time, this is a pink (x rated) film about Asami (the pretty Asami Ogawa) who works in an office and is having an sexual relationship with her boss. She lives with her father, who is looking for her to get married. She doesn't seem averse to the idea and meets someone. The reason this film is watchable is that the plot is pretty good. Also, Asami Ogawa is good in her role. Of course, some of this film is fairly explicit, and a few of the sex scenes are more violent than sensual, but the production values are good and the direction, by legendary pink film director Masaru Konuma, is spot on. Of course, this is not for everyone, but if your tastes gravitate to these films, you can certainly do a lot worse. The fact that it has a good lead character makes it stronger and watchable.
