Storyline

A young and beautiful woman goes to stay with her "eccentric" brother in the country. He - a crazed millionaire painter - is entranced by his sister's beauty, the very reason they were separated in their youth. Unable to hide his yearning for his own flesh and blood, the lady of the house decides to take matters into her own hands to preserve her status.

A leopard never changes her spots.
18 September 2019 | by morrison-dylan-fanSee all my reviews

After a hectic day,I decided to take the phone off the hook,and finish the day by playing a short Pinku. By chance being the flick at the very top of my "To watch" pile, I took a glance at a female leopard.

Note:Some spoilers in review.

View on the film:

Featuring butterflies prominently in the feature, director Koyu Ohara sharply contrasts their brightness for what would be his final film, by decorating the walls of the Takuya household in a pristine chic white,which unwraps a peculiar atmosphere, via the sleazy sex and murderous perverted antics of the family unfolding against a perfect, clean backdrop. Backed by a pure 80's dark synch score, Takuya takes the (un- credited) Pinku incest drama of the script, and with the support of the pristine whites, pushes it into a heightened Soap Opera of slo-mo and even wind machines set on the hair of every actress. Returning to her family, pretty Kozue Tanaka gives a enticing performance as Yuko, whose ill-fitting status within her family over the relationship with her brother is wonderfully plucked by Tanaka,as a female leopard walks pass.
