erotic gem
4 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Why should I be surprised this is so good? The guy had already made the influential and original, Flower and Snake, the sensational nunsploitation; Cloistered Nun: Runa's Confession and the sublime, Wife to be Sacrificed and certainly does not disappoint here. Beautifully shot and framed, this is a visual treat from beginning to end. Naomi Tani is as good as ever but the other two protagonists are equally effective and for once the male lead is not some cringing bastard. Quite breathtaking sequences of consensual and non consensual sexual activity and most effective use of colour shape and form with flashbacks but always keeping the eventful tale moving forward. For what would appear to be such a mundane genre, such care and attention to detail is most impressive and should be appreciated by all who chance upon this erotic gem.
