Disturbing film showcases the evolution of tortures and sexual violence of Imperial Japan
7 August 2019 | by srinoyslashSee all my reviews

The film is divided in two parts: 1st half in 1600s of Edo and the 2nd half in 1800s of the Imperial Japan. The first half of the movie ultra violent nature of that hostile Edo rule depicting gore and horrific scenes might make your skin crawl. The second half of the film tones down the violence a bit adding some dark humor and Black Comedy so as to show the society did progressed from it's Barbaric approaches of tortures or sexual violence to more humiliating approaches where the intention was to break them morally. The film certainly not suited for general audience because it would certainly lead you to depression.
