Publicity seeking Japanese Talent promotes herself
14 June 2010 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

This is not a movie. This is a publicity stunt. It is a series of poorly acted, exceedingly short soft-core porn shots mashed together into some semblance of a theme. But why in the world would anyone waste their time and money to make such a film? Is it really a film or a rich Japanese woman's ego trip? The answer is Kyoko Kano.

If you have never been to Japan then you have probably never heard of Kyoko Kano. Kyoko and her sister (the Kano Sisters) are well known in Japan for promoting themselves with wild tales of sexual exploits, wearing "revealing" clothes on TV and selling books to generally titillate their male audience. Unfortunately their activities have made them targets of criticism by many journalists and celebrities and in one or two instances the sisters antics have run afoul of the law.

If you know all this then its easy to see why this "film" was made. Its nothing more than a desperate Japanese celebrity trying to sell her public the idea she was in a soft core porn movie. She only says a few words in English throughout the film and spends the rest of the time doing short, mildly erotic scenes with men and women.

The film has no real plot and is based on Kyoko's novel. An Italian girl who sells roses for a living becomes interested in a mysterious Japanese woman who one days shows up in town and does nothing more than have sex with everyone. The director and most of the actors have never been in another movie.

Don't waste your time with this one, not even if your curious about Kyoko. If your looking for B rated porn, pass on this one. Most of the scenes look like they are from bad 70's soft core movies. Blink twice and they will be over.
