In The Realm Of The Senses

In The Realm of the Senses review

Long before Nine Songs, Shortbus and The Brown Bunny sparked a brief craze for ‘unsimulated’ rumpypumpy, there was Nagisa Ôshima’s chin-stroking filth marathon.

The story of the dark, destructive obsession between a randy restaurant owner and his maidservant, it’d be easy to write off as a male power fantasy were it not based on a real-life scandal that electrified ’30s Japan.

This new edition features an ‘is-it-art?’ discussion and even more shagging in the deleted scenes.
