Fresh off the success of Hakujitsumu, the first big-budget <i>pinku eiga</i> film, notorious softcore director Tetsuji Takechi unleashed a film which would polarize the nation. The story of a disturbed young man whose mother was raped by American soldiers, the films' sexual themes were probably less responsible for its subsequent obscenity trial than its political undertones. Consumed with hatred for Americans and unable to make love unless playing with a loaded gun, its protagonist eventually gets shot down by Japanese military police after shooting a black American soldier. The resultant obscenity trial brought such luminaries as Seijun Suzuki and Nagisa Oshima to the witness stand, and ended with a landmark decision which allowed complete narrative freedom in Japanese films. This development paved the way for the thousands of softcore <i>pinku eiga</i> and S & M films which would define Japanese exploitation cinema until the final wall -- the prohibition of pubic hair -- fell in the late '80s and pornography took over. Akira Ishihama and Kotobuki Hananomoto co-star.
