Storyline

Young artist Kyoko (Ami Tomite) wreaks havoc on everyone that she encounters, her worst being reserved for simpering older assistant Noriko (Mariko Trutsui), whom she routinely humiliates-or at least that's what seems to be happening, before an abrupt about-face. Outrageous rabble-rouser Sono's contribution to the Roman Porno redux series contains plenty of sex, but is also a fourth-wall breaking, experimental study of feminine agency set against outlandish, eye-popping backdrops.

colourful flick about a whore
16 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

For an Eastern flick it was rather short, only 78 minutes and not the usual over 2 hours flicks. Still, it's a very weird flick to watch. You are on a set of a porn flick but so much more is going on.

I was surprised of the full nudity without blurring. Not that much seen in those flicks. There's of course a lot of full frontal but it never becomes vulgar let's even say it's far away from porn. So I can understand that many are fooled by the title. Still it has bondage and domination and leather and dildo's being used but it's never explicit and the story makes it a rather weird one to watch.

There are no effects whatsoever used but the story is seen in a few weird ways and the daughter asking her dad to take her virginity away can be offending for some..
