Classic Pinku deviancy.
11 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Naomi Tani plays Okoma, a card dealer and member of the Sakura yakuza clan, who is intending to leave her gangster lifestyle behind in order to marry a chef. Her plans go awry, however, when she exposes the leader of the rival Yuki clan as a cheat during her last card game: the humiliated gangster sends a team of assassins to attack Okama's home which results in the death of her intended.

The ambitious Yuki clan then proceed to take control of the area, dispatching the Sakura boss, and hassling his daughter, who is eventually tricked out of the deeds to her business and forced to work as a whore. Okama attempts to free the poor girl, but is captured and tortured herself. After much humiliation, an old yakuza pal comes to Okama's rescue and the pair exact their revenge.

Combining the tits and torture content of pinku cinema with the bloody, revenge-themed violence typically found in such Manga based movies as Lady Snowblood and the Lone Wolf series, Rope and Skin is a jaw-dropping addition to Nikkatsu's oeuvre: seventy minutes of nudity, violence, degradation, topless fighting, and bondage, with a bit of bright red arterial spray thrown in for good measure.

With all of this depravity, and a pretty decent story to boot, how could any fan of extreme cinema resist watching?
