In pre-War Japan, Sada a prostitute-turned-maid working at a restaurant begins an affair with the owner Kichi. Sada’s refinement in contrast to her gargantuan sexual appetite has Kichi bedazzled and the couple move into a hotel. While Sada’s obsession with his cock flatters Kichi, he also feels overwhelmed by her possessiveness and the couple soon begin to explore darker sexual realms to reinforce their relationship.

Banned all over the place at the time of its release, In the Realm of the Senses has since confused viewers with its artistry, yet unabashed explicitness.

I can only think that the film was banned in some countries not because of the unsimulated sex but because the frequent sex scenes just become monotonous and boring. Not only that, but also the cries and moans of pleasure coming from the woman are so unreal and totally disproportionate to the size of his equipment. Size does matter, and he is obviously in the medium to small range. As a sexy film it fails due to the excess of sex, which also ruins the chance for the film to be a serious drama with a shocking end.

An incredible acquisition by EUM.
It seems odd that the film was regarded as so controversial and banned in so many countries. There is nothing in it that would be inappropriate for an adult audience to see.

When infatuation becomes devotion as you fall into what is ultimately self-destruction. Sada is essentially Kichi’s femme fatale and a psychotic one at that. A brilliantly shot period piece to boot. Great film. 4.5/5 kimonos

A masterpiece from the weirdest nation on the planet , brilliant mixture of poetic porn and sadistic love. I particularly loved that women called Men master.
