Plot – Spoilers:
Rinko is a mild-mannered young woman who works as a counselor advising troubled people over the phone. One of the men she had advised works as a photographer for a group who specialize in a type of a virtual-porno experience. The guy was suicidal, until Rinko’s sweet voice gave him a new purpose in life: to force-help Rinko express her sexuality that was repressed in a marriage to a much older man.
A Snake of June is exciting so long as it sticks to its stalker-voyeur angle, but stumbles when it attempts to bring the empty couple together. But it’s got monochrome style and will certainly appeal to Shinya Tsukamoto fans.
