Koji Wakamatsu's subtle pinku drama.
18 February 2015 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Kôji Wakamatsu's "A Pool Without Water" tells the story of a frustrated ticket-puncher(Yuya Uchida)who works on the Tokyo underground.During one rainy night he saves a woman from being gang-raped by two attackers.But he can't impress women,so he gets a large amount of chloroform and starts stalking various girls including his favourite waitress named Nerika.First he sprays their rooms with chloroform making them unconscious and then rapes them.He prepares breakfasts for Nerika after raping her."A Pool Without Water" is a surprisingly gentle pinku drama in comparison to various other pinku eiga/Roman Porno/violent pink movies of 70's and early 80's.The acting is pretty believable and the story is captivating.8 Polaroids out of 10.
