Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Still censored in its own country, In the Realm of the Senses (Ai no corrida), by Japanese director Nagisa Oshima, remains one of the most controversial films of all time. A graphic portrayal of insatiable sexual desire, Oshima's film, set in 1936 and based on a true incident, depicts a man and a woman (Fuji and Matsuda) consumed by a transcendent, destructive love while living in an era of ever escalating imperialism and governmental control. Less a work of pornography than of politics, In the Realm of the Senses is a brave, taboo-breaking milestone. In Japanese with English subtitles. The Criterion Collection.

Synopsis:

In 1936 Japan, sexual obsession and experimentation evolves into violence between a hotel manager and maid.
