A submissive hooker goes about her trade, suffering abuse at the hands of Japanese salarymen and Yakuza types. She’s unhappy about her work, and is apparently trying to find some sort of appeasement for the fact that her lover has married.
Very erotic and sick at the same time. This movie leads you down the dark allies of human sexuality. But it touches more than the loins. This is mostly because of the innocence of the Ai, the main character. Her quest for true love and happiness stands in a deep contrast with the dark nighttime of Tokyo, ridden with perverse sex and cocaine.
This movie is a must for people interested in culture, sexuality and gender roles. It gives perfect examples of how power play somehow gets us excited, but mainly rests upon images of gender and sex we have invented inside our culture. It’s a little Foucault, it’s a little de Sade, it’s just very interesting.
