    I must be world-weary. This film bored me to sleep; just like "Caligula", it was a case of  over-kill deadening all  interest. It is not erotic -  merely dressed- up porno.

    This FIlm is not about sex, or even passion. It's about suffering, and if you don't mind, it's about suffering delight. it's the yang of the enlightenment-yin, complementing it. music in it's extreme has the same effect. ... i know it now. like many, i used to think it's just a lustful movie. a certain level of humbleness is required for decoding this kind of art, which again, comes with suffering...

    It's a porn movie, yes. I agree to it. To even define this movie as a "masterpiece" will speak to one's taste.

    What a nice trailer! I love the scene around 4:35. Farewell and rest in peace, Mr. Oshima! 安らかに、大島監督!

    No es porno, es sobre sexualidad de pareja y las parafilias...
