Rape And Death Of A Housewife
(Hitozuma Shûdam Bôkô Chishi Jickem)

by Noboru TANAKA


A wailing, tenor sax-heavy soundtrack underpins sordid melodrama in this landmark Sun Tribe film. Brothers Natsuhisa and Haruji aimlessly waste away days basking on beaches and nights drinking in bars, indolently enjoying Japan’s postwar economic boom. However tensions arise when Natsuhisa becomes obsessed with his younger brother’s “pure” girlfriend. With its impressionistic, innuendo-filled imagery that pushed the boundaries of Japan’s decency code, it’s a sui generis vision of youthful transgression.
