A slight disappointment
Well, I enjoyed "Ai no corrida" (Realm of Senses), and didn't expect much of this one. And I wasn't mistaken - it's boring. I like Oshima for his "Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence" and "Realm of Senses", but this film disappointed me. The plot is too forced, characters have no motivation. Pity.
