No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA: Rokugatsu no Hebi
Directed by: Shinya Tsukamoto
Starring: Asuka Kurosawa (Rinko), Yûji Kôtari (Husband), Shinya Tsukamoto (Stalker)
Country: Japan, Asian Cinema
Language: Japanese (English Subs)
Runtime: 01:16:51
Genres: Voyeur, Porno-Themed

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.

The biggest perversion of Rinko is being married with a so much older man.
So, from the start, the film has no conflicts or problem to be solved: the photographer gives Rinko the way to be stuck in her problem rather then solving it.
Anyway the movie gives hope to find younger and attractive womens to everyone; this must be recognized 🙂
Strictly to the movie line, it’s very well written and staged, with perfect balanced state of mind.
