| Best movie made by Oniroku Dan or Takashi Ishii
It's difficult to imagine that cute Aya Sugimoto who was the bikini idol of the '80s have matured to play this role. But I'm impressed with the professionalism that she's nurtured over the years, and she's definitely not just an actress that can be watched, but an actress worth watching as an actor.

The combination of Oniroku Dan, and Takashi Ishii (who's a comic artist asides from being a movie director, and probably drew the artwork shown in the computer at the beginning of the movie) carried over from part 1, and (imo) have created a better visual drama than part 1.

Oniroku Dan of course was Japan's preeminent S&M novel writer, and his style shows in the way Sugimoto is bondaged, but compared to part 1 which he wrote in his 30s, this one seems to be a more modern creation. His classic style of woman (usually two of them) being abducted, taken to a secret place, and bondaged, and raped by multiple men (usually delinquents, or gangs) is also included in this story.

If all the nude scenes are taken out, this movie still could be viewed as a good drama, and a well produced movie. The visuals are very beautiful in this movie also.

This is the best movie I've seen made by Oniroku Dan or Takashi Ishii, and although I'm not a fan of either of them, if there's one movie to watch made by them, this one is it.
