Akai satsui ()

Probable Score

In detailed fashion, the film investigates the troubled psyche of a dull, uneducated lower-class housewife in a backward northeastern, province. The woman is so stupid that she is scarcely aware of the drabness of her life with a petty, bickering husband and his whining mother, or of her own thwarted sensuality... (IMDB Comments)

Intentions of Murder is beautifully shot film about loneliness, possession, and the terror of freedom. Aside from a small child, no one is "likeable", and characters give into their own weaknesses at every turn. Reminiscent of Hitchcock.

sadako balik etli, sevgisiz yasayan, kendisinden vazgecmis bir beslemedir. kaynanasi ve kocasi tarafindan hor gorulen, aldatilan bir kadin. kadinligin ezilme mirasindan payini fazlasiyla almistir. bir gun evine giren hirsiz tarafindan tecavuze ugradim hayatim degisti travmasi yasar. hayatina giren yeni adam da en az kocasi kadar zayif bir tiplemedir ama icinde bir seylerin harekete gecmesini saglar. feminist bir roman gibi. yeryer imamura kamerasini dikkat cekici kullandigi gercekci bir dram.

Although I'm not quite sure he pulls it off, in theory this is one of Shohei Imamura's most disturbing films, a story about a browbeaten and subjugated housewife whose rape (and subsuquent bonding with her rapist) sends her on an internal journey toward reclaiming her womanhood. It's surreally shot, too --probably more stunning shots than in any other Imamura film. But it left me cold.

So here's another Japanese rape movie. There's more to it than that, obviously, but it's not much more pleasant. Sadako has to contend with her emotionally needy rapist, her bratty son, her hypercritical mother-in-law, her dickhead husband, and his shrewish mistress. Imamura keeps it interesting with some bold flourishes (some of which were seen before in The Insect Woman) but the whole thing is so harsh to its protagonist that, despite the occasional injection of humor, it's hard to "enjoy".
