Surprisingly comical rape extravaganza.
18 October 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Raping!" is another very rare pinku eiga rape film made with gallons of style by Yasuharu Hasebe.It's ultra-sleazy and surprisingly comical as the main heroine is raped constantly on her way to Tokyo.The rapists are for example a trucker,an owner of love hotel,a mechanic,a doctor,even the cops.There is also a homosexual gang-rape scene of a would-be rapist by three leather-clad bikers.Despite of its short running time "Raping!" looks terrific.The acting is fine and the jazz score is brilliant.Of course "Yaru!" is not as upsetting as Yasuharu Hasebe's earlier pinky violence flicks,however fans of cinematic filth should give it a look as soon as possible.Highly recommended,especially for pinku eiga newbies.
