Synopsis:
A dramatic account of three women and their lives, seen through the looking glass of sex, words, madness, death, and family, 'Guilty Of Romance' - the new crime noir from the award-winning director Sion Sono - tells the tale of three women entangled in a mystery...a mystery that is the gate to a hell-bound love like no other! Set just before the turn of the 21st century, a grisly murder occurs in Maruyama-cho, Shibuya - a love hotel district - a woman was found dead in a derelict apartment in the pouring rain. Whilst the police investigate, the story interweaves with that of Izumi, the wife of a famous romantic novelist whose life seems just a daily repetition without romance.
One day, to break away from the loveless monotony, she decides to follow her desires and accepts a job as a naked model faking sex in front of the camera. Soon she meets with a mentor and starts selling her body to strangers, whilst at home she hides behind the facade that she is still the wife she is supposed to be.
