This is one of the many shoddy low-budget <i>pinku eiga</i> films released by Excess Films, the stepchild of the once-mighty softcore division of Nikkatsu after that studio stopped producing pink films earlier in the year. Naokazu Chinzei, a protégé of cult favorite Kazuo Komizu (aka "Gaira"), directed this story of violent pimps, yakuza gangsters, and prostitutes with hearts of gold before moving on to adult videos. It's a routine melodrama punctuated by Chinzei's signature use of peculiar camera angles and jump cuts, looking more like one of his mentor's surreal horror films than a standard roughie. Yui Saito co-stars with Saeko Kizuki and Shiro Shimomoto.
