Based on a true story, this is the story of one of Japan's most notorious scandals. An ex-prostitute enters service in a household and promptly begins an obsessive and sexually perverse affair with the master. What starts as a casual diversion escalates into a passion that holds no bounds. The intensity of the affair and the couple's mutual appetite for exploring the physical and sexual limits of their love-making completely overwhelms them and the strain of the relationship takes its toll on all concerned.
Be prepared for beautiful and explicit erotica.
- In the Realm of the Senses review by DD
The synopsis under 'General Info' here gives a useful sense of the theme of the film. The drama and passion unfold beautifully and with elegance. The film is all the more stunning in the knowledge that it is based on actual events in Japan. Potential viewers need to be prepared for the explicit sexual scenes.
