| Ambitious Pink Film
Director Noburo Tanaka was a prolific director of "pink films" throughout the 1970's, but unlike many other creators of these sex themed films, Tanaka strived for more than exploitation. For he was an artist, as can be seen when watching such titles as "Watcher In the Attic," his unforgettable "Midnight Fairy," and this film, concerning a man who befriends 3 violent, sex obsessed boys, who take advantage of his trust by assaulting his wife. There isn't a lot of actual "sex" in "Rape and Death of A Housewife," and much of the sex is really not meant to be sexually arousing. Instead Tanaka goes to great lengths to give depth and dimension to the characters, which is something unheard of in this genre. So much detail is paid to the story at hand that the viewer might forget that they are watching a 'pinku eiga." At times funny, and sometimes sad, but always interesting study of misfits and anti-social behavior.
