Okay Japanese rape film.
26 September 2005 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Angel Guts:Nami" is a third installment in Nikkatsu Studio's roman porno series.This time a young female reporter Nami tracks down women who have been savagely raped in the past.Unfortunately for her,she interviews a nurse who had been a victim of rape.Raping Nami and then brutally sodomizing her,the nurse has in fact shown Nami what she was looking for.Once again,like the victim she has interviewed,Nami herself becomes suicidal,unbalanced and feeling very dirty."Angel Guts:Nami" is a pretty nasty Japanese rape film.It's a well-directed and superbly lit assault on viewer's senses.The rape scenes are rather brutal and will certainly leave some viewers disturbed,but anyone who likes Japanese pink movies won't be disappointed.The acting is quite good with Eri Kanuma giving excellent performance as Nami.So if you enjoyed other installments of controversial "Angel Guts" series you can't go wrong with "Nami".8 out of 10.
