Classic of pinku eiga genre.
6 October 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Kunisada's wife,Akiko(Naomi Tani),left him three years ago due to his violent temper.Unfortunately for her Kunisada suddenly returns and kidnaps her.She is brought to a hidden cabin in a remote wooded area.The husband subjects her to a variety of sexual humiliations, slowly breaking her will until Akiko becomes totally submissive."Wife to Be Sacrificed" is perhaps one of the most famous Japanese S&M pink films.The cinematography is lovely and the acting is stunning.There is plenty of sleaze and sexual degradation on display,but later Masaru Konuma's pinku films like "Woman in a Box" series are even more extreme in their depiction of sexual violence.Overall,I enjoyed this stylish and harrowing film and you should too,if you are into Japanese erotic cinema.9 out of 10.
