Description du produit

Nagisa Oshima's examination of sexual obsession, set in pre-war Japan.


Orfana e forse anche già prostituta, la giovane Abe Sada viene assunta come servetta tuttofare in un alberghetto di cui sono gestori Kichi-San e sua moglie. In breve tempo Kichi-San, detto Kichi cede agli amori ancillari e Sada, capovolgendo il rapporto sociale, trascina la danza in un abisso erotico sempre più profondo e deterministico. Abituati ad amarsi al cospetto di geishe o di altri occasionali "guardoni", i due amanti-adulteri finiscono per nascondersi in una casa compiacente, dalla quale Sada esce a volte per offrirsi a un magistrato e ricavare il denaro per tirare avanti. L'assuefazione al piacere dei sensi induce consensualmente i due alla ricerca di accorgimenti innaturali per accentuare la voluttà. Fatale diviene la scoperta del sadomasochismo e, in particolare, la constatazione delle reazioni fisiologiche dell'uomo con il cappio al collo. Sada chiede sempre di più e Kichi la pungola sino al momento in cui, avendo la donna stretto il cappio forte e a lungo, l'uomo muore. Sada lo mutila e giace accanto a lui. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

HASH(0x9db8c744) étoiles sur 5 Serious Minded Erotica...... 19 décembre 1999
Par - Publié sur
Format: Cassette vidéo
Nagisa Oshima has achieved what few other directors have managed in dealing with the very touchy subject of sex, in this instance, with sexual obsession. If you plan to watch this movie for a cheap sexual thrill, you will be most disappointed. Oshima has drawn from a real incident reported in a 1936 Japanese newspaper. The film centers around the love between two people expressed physically, graphically, into realms of the senses where few dare to tread. And with good reason. This is a very intense film as it progresses from the attraction of two people through increasing experimentation in an effort not only to express their passion but to try to find the outer most limits of passion itself. Oshima must have had something metaphorical in mind but the journey as chronicled in the film also has retained the feel of the specifics. It's quirkey and eccentric. The backdrop of the story is as interesting as the story itself. It is an amazing spectacle to observe, giving the viewer a perspective on Japanese life not usually rendered but often alluded to in some historical accounts. One wonders what this experience must have been like for the actors. Oshima has managed what I have always believed should be done in order to treat the subject of sex fully and without shrinking from its' less savory aspects. This is serious minded erotica and quite unlike anything else on screen. The only other film I can recall that compares at all is "Taxi Zum Klo" which was autobiographical and starred a number of actual people playing themselves.Obviously a different catagory in that regard from what is going on here, but both films draw much of their power from explicitly sexual scenes without compromising the integrity of the story being told. This is a film experience that should not be missed.

HASH(0x9db8cb4c) étoiles sur 5 ASTOUNDING EROTICA..... 22 octobre 2002
Par Mark Norvell - Publié sur
Format: DVD
This is an amazing film to watch. Not only is it beautifully filmed but the atmosphere is quite vivid in its' depiction of a Japanese servant girl who becomes mistress of the master of the house and sexually obsessed with their relationship. She leads him deeper into the sexual realm until it becomes the focus of both their lives. Their relationship becomes so intense that it can only lead to destruction. Film is extremely sexually graphic and to be honest, I wasn't even aware that I was watching "pornography" because the acting and story were so mesmerizing. By then, I didn't care because it wasn't offensive---just honest. The two leads are wonderful actors and they made me forget I was watching a supposedly one-time controversial film. The film is supposedly based on a true incident. The ending is shocking and depressing but that's allegedly what happened. I consider this film a classic and a must see for foreign film buffs. It's one of the most beautiful erotic love stories ever made and one of the most disturbing.

HASH(0x9db8cbc4) étoiles sur 5 Eroticism at its finest 29 juillet 2001
Par Ken2001 - Publié sur
Format: DVD
This movie is probably the most erotic film that I've seen to date (pornos notwithstanding). It is a movie about obsession and what can happen when it gets out of control, something that this movie demonstrates well. However, I wished the movie had delved into the background of the characters, especially Sada's. If the audience watching this film knew about Sada's past, where she was raped and then outcaste by her wealthy family because of it, I think the audience would have a better understanding about the reason for Sada's behavior. Still, despite that and an undeveloped plot, the movie is still entertaining. However, if you want to see a more sanitized version of this story, which is based on an actual event that took place in Tokyo in 1936, then get "A Woman Called Sada Abe", which is available on both VHS and DVD. From what I've heard, it doesn't have nearly as much sex and nudity as "In the Realm of the Senses", which is a good thing for people who are easily offended by it. Personally, I liked the sex scenes, which I felt were tasteful and elegant, unlike what would normally be found in a pornographic movie. There was a lot of emotion displayed in those scenes, and that gave it a certain romantic, authentic dimension to it. For that reason alone, I will watch it again and again.

HASH(0x9db8cf54) étoiles sur 5 a rock and a hard place 18 avril 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
Fox-Lorber has devised a new level of cruelty for fans of this film. You can have a full-screen version with subtitles or a widescreen version with dubbing. What you need is a widescreen version with subtitles. The dubbing turns this dark parable into a sleazy porno film. The images are carefully and beautifully composed - you don't need them chopped up by pan and scan. In addition, the English language version (the only one I've seen) has horrible 'ghosting' along the edges of any high-contrast contour - it looks like it was dubbed from a poor over-the-air tv transmission! It's also slightly censored - not the version I saw overseas, anyway...Until someone offers a decent DVD version of this film, I recommend passing on these insultingly inferior transfers.

HASH(0x9db8cdb0) étoiles sur 5 Nagisa Oshima's explicit and controversial film on the infamous case of Sada Abe 6 août 2006
Par Lawrance Bernabo - Publié sur
Format: DVD
"For four days, carrying the part she'd severed from his body, Sada wandered through Tokyo. Those arresting her were astounded that she glowed with happiness. The story shocked all of Japan. The compassion of the people made her strangely popular. These events took place in 1936."

As described by the final voice over of the narrator, the subject matter of "In the Realm of the Senses" is the most lurid true story to come out of Japan in the years before World War II. On May 18, 1936, a woman named Sada Abe strangled her lover, Kichizo Ishida, during sex at the hotel he owned. Sada was a maid in the household, having apparently retired from being a prostitute, and began an affair with her master that explored passion and pain during sex. That he would permit her to erotically asphyxiate him might have been enough to make this story a national sensation, but after Kichizo was dead she amputated his genitals and carried them with her as she wandered the streets of Tokyo for several days before she was arrested.

Nagisa Oshima's 1976 film tells the story of this troubled relationship, although it does not end with Sada's capture, but with her holding her dead lover after she has taken her grisly memento and written "Sada and Kichi, now one" in his blood on his chest while we hear the finally narration. Prior to that the film is about the dynamic of the relationship between Sada and Kichizo, with their sexual relationship explicitly presented as they travel the road to their entwined destiny. Consequently, I would consider "In the Realm of the Senses" to be a dramatic film with explicit sex scenes rather than a pornographic film with strong dramatic elements. What you think of the film might well depend on whether you consider the sex scenes to be gratuitous or erotic, although certainly there are other reactions. Simply knowing what you are going to see may be more than enough to dissuade you from seeing the film.

For me the eroticism is tempered by the omnipresent fact that in the end Sada is going to kill Kichizo and amputate his genitals, and there is nothing sexual in the film that is going to make me forget what is going to happen in the end. Nor is there anything here to suggest that the director is thinking otherwise. In the climactic scene the camera is shooting from in front of the couple, with the emphasis on his bound hands and her pulling on the scarf around his neck to cut off his air, and not on where their bodies are joined. Their sexual pathology is displayed and not explained, but I do not think Oshima can be faulted for failing to explain the unexplainable. We see how their sexual activity moves in inexorably in its fatal direction, and how the willingness to go beyond all the way becomes part of their attraction to each other. Ultimately the question is not whether the film is sexual, but whether the true story it tells feels real, and by that standard I think it succeeds.

The movie is currently rated NC-17, but was obviously first rated X by the MPAA. Oshima was unable to finish the film in Japan because of censorship laws, which is why the production is officially listed as being French and the undeveloped footage was shipped to France for both processing and editing. In Japan the sexual activity has been optically censored ever since the 1976 premier. The United States and the Netherlands are some of the only countries where the film has been available in completely uncut editions.

Sada was convicted and sentenced to six years in prison, but her sentence was commuted in 1940. Assuming an alias she married, but her husband divorced her when he discovered her identity. She then became an actress, actually portraying herself in several productions about the infamous incident, but after 1970 she dropped from sight and her final fate remains unknown. In addition to "In the Realm of the Senses," the story has been told cinematically in "A Woman Called Sada Abe" (1975) and "Sada" (1998). However, this version is far and away the most notorious, and for good reason. For many people simply hearing her story is enough and they will have no desire to see it depicted cinematically. Certainly my curiosity is satiated on the matter.
