Junichi INOUE

A Woman And War


Nippon Visions   ½ 

A prostitute, an author and a returning soldier face the immanent despair and nihilism in their war-struck nation. For them, sex has become meaningless and at the same time the only way to feel anything at all. In his first feature film, INOUE explicitly and pitilessly pursues the roles of victims and perpetrators and the question of guilt in Japan
