top notch Nikkatsu 'roman porno' production
10 May 2007 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Astonishing, top notch Nikkatsu 'roman porno' production. High quality widescreen photography and non-stop sex action. And what action! I take issue here with Mr Weisser and his plot outline in 'Japanese Cinema Encyclopedia' but never mind I have to assume it is the same film he calls, 'Rope Cosmetology', even without the benefit of subtitles! This starts pretty fast and barely pauses as two ladies, including Naomi Tani, nude and near nude, walk around on all fours on dog leads, have themselves bound and tickled and worse. Or better, but eating dog food from a bowl, made to pee in a bucket not to mention the activity with a real Alsatian dog! How all this erotic, disturbing and provocative activity can be presented realistically is simply amazing. I have many times sat open mouthed before Japanese cinema product but this one surely beats them all.
