Based on a true story set in pre-war Japan. The geisha Sada and her lover have a torrid affair. Passion is absolute. Their desire becomes a sexual obsession so strong that they forsake all, even life itself. They dive ever deeper into an erotic universe of their own construction.
Although the scandal has abated, Oshima’s poetry and refined direction are still hailed worldwide.
