  • In 1936, in the midst of rising Japanese militarism, a former prostitute, Sada, goes to work as a maid in a brothel. The house's handsome owner, Kichizo, soon begins to court her, and Sada eagerly returns his attentions. Their subsequent affair and constant lovemaking grow more and more intense, and their sexual obsession threatens to destroy them both. Nagisa Oshima's long-awaited erotic Japanese masterpiece (initially banned from the New York Film Festival in 1976) is finally available. Contains highly explicit content, recommended for adult audiences only.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Oshima has crafted an uncompromising portrait of obsessive sexual passion..."
    Total Film

    "REALM's escalating affair of sexual obsession takes place in 1936....[It] remains a genuine feat of hard-core eroticism."
    Film Comment

    "IN THE REALM OF THE SENSES still has plenty of shock value...but there's a complexity and progression to the sex scenes that say more about this relationship than dialogue ever could." -- Grade: B+
