Flower and Snake 3: Discipline
24 September 2010 | by (Purgatory) – See all my reviews

A businessman is ruthless with his competitors, and in response his competitors after being driven out of business kidnap aforementioned business man's wife and start training her to be a porn star, particularly of the S&M/bondage variety, in order to blackmail the business man into paying them not to release the porn film that they're creating...starring his wife. (Yeah, the plot doesn't really make a whole lot of sense, but it doesn't really need to, I guess.) There's not really much to say about this movie. If you're interested in softcore pinky bondage films like the previous Flower & Snake movies, Wife to be Sacrificied, etc. then I'd check it out. There's some debauchery/humiliation and what have you (someone urinates in someone else's face, sexual intercourse with a meat product of some kind, some girl-on-girl) but all in all it's just skullnumbingly boring. But, y'know, like I said, if you like the older Japanese bondage productions, then your mileage may vary (despite being released in 2010, the production has an intentionally created older look to it). I just went into it with a (probably misguided) expectation for Japanese exploitation OTT madness, and in that sense was disappointed.
