Violence At High Noon Film Poster


Director Nagisa Oshima's controversial examination of society's moral decay in postwar Japan. Based on the real-life story of brutal rapist Eisuke (Kei Sato), Oshima examines the relationship between the rapist, his protective wife Matsuko (Akiko Koyama), and the last living victim, Shino (Saeda Kawagushi). Although they live in a rural setting, the grim living conditions that the three main characters have to endure are portrayed as being equally abhorrent to the activities of the rapist himself, whose actions reflect the decay, amorality, and corruption into which modern society has sunk.
