Synopsis

Japanese sexual drama about a bizarre love triangle featuring blood oaths, suicide pacts, deception and desire. Sonoko (Kyouko Kishida) a housewife, bored with her workaday existence, enrols in an art class to fill her days. There, her lascivious paintings of the young model Mitsuko (Ayako Wakao) make her the talk of the place. Soon, the paintings lead to a sweltering lesbian love affair between the two and neither of their male lovers is very happy about it - setting off an explosion of passion, fury and murderous desire. A wildly controversial film upon its 1964 release, it retains the ability to shock even today with its graphic portrayal of sexual love on both sides of the line.
