Beautiful Japanese woman loves Persian carpets. She is sought after by a young photographer and a rich old libertine.
I saw this 35 years ago, so I hope I can be forgiven for forgetting things.
A very beautiful Japanese woman is in love with Persian carpets. She is being chased by lecherous Saburi Shin and a handsome young photographer. Lecherous Saburi Shin knows what she wants, and is able to produce it for her.
Perhaps the funniest scene has her in bed with the young photographer, when the old Saburi Shin phones her to tell her that he has bought a new excellent Persian carpet. Despite the young photographer's protests, she jumps out of bed and gets dressed, drives to Shin Saburi's house, opens the door and lays on the new carpet. Shin Saburi's bare feet approach her face and his voice says, "so, you came here, didn't you?"
In the last scene, she is in Iran, by herself, near the Persian carpets she loves.
At times, this film is an ironic comedy.... the photography is stunning.
