"Sex Friend Nurezakari" is an example of Japan's pink cinema which came into existence in the 60's with its rather daring use of eroticism. "Sex Friend" is a soft-core entry into the genre. The most fascinating aspect of the film is how it mixes a roadmovie with a ghost story and a softcore sex film. The result however left me bored.
The film is only 58 minutes long but since there's not much plot, this hour seemed rather long to me. The occasional nude scenes don't help much. What you're left with at the end is a sort of "Field of Dreams" with a little sex. An interesting concept? Perhaps, because I've read a couple of reviews that suggested "Sex Friend" should be considered a cult movie. I think it shouldn't. I think it should rather be considered a sloppy, mildly entertaining sex romp with supernatural elements and flashes of absurd humor. If that's your thing, go ahead.
My rating: 3/10
