An anarchist broadside that feminizes rage, confronts sex and cries out for freedom. Will make (some) men quake in their boots.


A woman. A world of colours. Normality shattering into a million pieces. In what is likely the most radical film by Sion Sono (Love ExposureSuicide Club), sex is war and freedom is what’s at stake. This hell of erotic hysteria is the second part (after Wet Woman in the Wind, also being screened this year) of a new “Roman Porno” (after the fashion of the famous Nikkatsu films of the 1970s). A major work that plays like a Ken Russell film steeped in vitriol, with Grand Guignol theatricality. (Julien Fonfrède)

« ...comme une relecture fantasmatique de Perfect Blue, à l’inventivité hallucinante et aux nombreuses grilles de lecture tant sur le genre que sur le medium cinéma ou la sexualité féminine. » Forum des images
