"That's a good, Bessie."
10 November 2009 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

If Grampa starts thinking you're a cow, what do you do? Well, if you're anything like, Noriko, you'll be a good cow, and wake up at 5 am every morning, strip naked, and wait patiently on all fours with the rest of the other cows for the senility stricken old man to yank on your nipples.

There was a time during the flick I was wondering if the old man was just a serious pervert, and he wasn't seeing a cow, but just saying those things to squeeze on his daughter-in law's boobies. As the story unfolds you see that his old age is indeed becoming a problem for him, and this is where the film opens your eyes to movie that's actually much deeper than previously thought. Combine it with some hot and heavy stuff and you got the makings of a very memorable pinku.

Lonely Cow Weeps at Dawn was a good one. With surprisingly good sex scenes, solid direction, acting and cinematography, mixed with an intriguing story, I was kept pretty entertained. And it doesn't hurt that the film is only a tad over an hour long. Check it out if you're looking to watch something a bit more abnormal.
