Kazuyoshi Kumakiri, best known for his expressive horror film Kichiki, takes on a different kind of story in this tale of danger and obsession. A thief (Shunsuke Sawada) whose ambition outstrips both his nerve and his criminal skills approaches a small gas station on a lonely road. The service stop is overseen by an attractive but lonely woman (Mitsuko Ishii) who reacts with no small vehemence when the thief attempts to rob the place -- and vomits midway through the crime. The thief ducks into the back room of the station when a police officer happens by, the woman grabs a knife and a fight ensues, but the battle proves to be a turn-on for both of them and the afternoon ends with the pair making love while tending to one another's wounds. However, while the thief is attracted to the woman, he isn't sure if he trusts her, and he discovers she's interested in more than a one night stand -- and will go to great lengths to see that he stays around. Kihatsu Sei No Onna (aka The Volatile Woman) received its North American premier at the 2005 Vancouver Film Festival.
