Shinji Imaoka - Tamamono AKA Lunchbox (2004)


Synopsis / Plot

The opening scene of the movie is highly significant – and indeed, the very first shot of the movie: it depicts the main female protagonist, Aiko, chomping her lunch out of a red plastic lunch box. For some reason which is never explained, she is mute; a 35-year-old bowling alley worker who has a giant crush on a young, handsome, moped-riding mailman named Yoshio. She forces him to become involved with her by knocking down his bike and stealing the post, much like a 12-year-old might try to engage someone’s romantic interest.

Tatsumi Kumashiro - Kurobara shôten (1975)


Tatsumi Kumashiro is one of the most accalimed pink film directors to emerge from Nikkatsu studio in the 70s. His films, though almost all erotic in nature, are often chosen by the respected Kinema Junpo as best films of the year.

Story outline translated from a Japanese source:
"Kurobara Shouten" (roughly translated as "the Ascension of Black Rose") tells the story of a porn film director Juzo (Shin Kishida of "Mandala"), who has a second profession of creating porn tapes (hilariously) by recording sound of animals in a zoo and in a dental clinic. He gets stuck in the middle of the production of his new film because the main actress, Meiko, wanted out since she is pregnant by the actor of the film. Later, Juzo accidentally records the sound of a sexually repressed traditional woman named Ikuyo ("Queen of SM" Naomi Tani of "Wife to Be Sacrificed" and the original "Flowers and Snakes") making out with the dentist. It turns out that Ikuyo is the mistress of a wealthy businessman, and she flirts with the dentist to satisfy her carnal needs. Juzo, disguised as a private detective, approaches Ikuyo and tries to persude/seduce/coerce her into being the new actress of his film.

Jean Valère - Mont-Dragon (1970)


For the sake of completeness with regard to the Jacques Brel (feature films) filmography as an actor, I'm uploading this movie though it is a poor quality rip, presumably from a vhs.

Mont-Dragon is probably the most obscure of the movies in which Jacques Brel starred. This goes for its current unavailability as well for its dark and filled with perversion plot. It's a typical stylish movie of the beginning of the 70s, with many at-the-time shocking dialogues and situations that nowadays has become very much out-of-time and out of fashion, and with the recurrent aim to reveal the hidden dirty affairs of the bourgeoisie.

Just Jaeckin - Histoire d'O AKA The Story of O (1975)


Unfortunately, the world of erotic cinema is quite often left behind as the bastardized stepchild of pornography. As long as they've been making films, they've been making erotic films. Films intended to stimulate or excite the viewer but at the same time, films that are a very important part of cinematic history, and are not to be discounted. They're not all winners, but there certainly are some diamonds in the rough to be found. Real films with real characters and real stories to be told… not just sex for the sake of sex and more often than not little to no hardcore elements. One of the true classics of erotic cinema has finally surfaced on domestic DVD, The Story of O... let's take a look.
