lyrical and quite beautiful
20 March 2009 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Far better than its English title, Slave Widow, or its clichéd scenario, old fellow gets younger woman, would suggest. Indeed this early b/w outing from Mr Watanabe is fairly lyrical and quite beautiful at times. The mood is much helped by the mellow, classical soundtrack but also by the remarkable camera-work. Partly, of course, much has to be done to avoid the sex scenes being too explicit but here the ingenious use of intense close-up or focus upon silken sheets and clothing do much to make for some surprisingly erotic moments. Featuring Naomi Tani in an early role and her body seems not to have yet developed in anything like the way that she would later be displayed within ropes in the 70s. Here, Noriko Tatsumi is the splendid and voluptuous lead and around whom the movie revolves. Interesting shifts of power in this one.
