After dealing with incredibly dim people today,I decided to catch a short, swift flick to relax. Having found Sion Sono's Tokyo Tribe (2014-also reviewed) to be incredibly invented,I decided to view some of his earlier teachings.
Note: Some small spoilers in review.
The main teacher in a pottery workshop, Ms. Namie finds the quality of her penis-shaped creations to improve, when she uses her hands, breasts and mouth to mould them. Taken by the unique skills shown, Namie's students ask her to teach them the ways of love and sex she hands into the pottery.
View on the film:
Made just one year before he became a big name with Suicide Club, co-star/writing/directing auteur Sion Sono gives the impression of just wanting to knock one out,and add it to his credits. Appearing to be mostly filmed in a real pottery workshop, Sono & cinematographer Kazuhiro Suzuki leave the rooms dimly lit as they are, and hold the camera wide across the room.
Moulded from the Pinku, Sono makes the title stand out in the genre,by keeping the steamy sex scenes mutually pleasurable for the men and the women. Bringing out his distinctive,off-beat humour, Sono spins clay into the sex scenes and crafts a quirky atmosphere, that in it's own odd way touches on the love which goes into Japanese craftsmanship.
