Film details

In the Realm of the Senses
by Nagisa Ōshima

Obsessive passion anatomized, with Oshima’s two outsider lovers withdrawing from the militaristic world of 1936 Japan and diving ever deeper into an erotic universe of their own construction. A cause celebre for its hardcore elements, but its provocations go beyond mere censor baiting.
