In The Realm Of The Senses [1976] [Criterion] (BLU)

Nagisa Oshima

BUY $35.98


In Japanese with English subtitles.


In the Realm of the Senses, by the always provocative Japanese director Nagisa Oshima, remains one of the most controversial films of all time. Based on a true incident, it graphically depicts the all-consuming, transcendent - but ultimately destructive - love of a man and a woman living in an era of ever escalating imperialism and governmental control. Less a work of pornography than of politics, In the Realm of the Senses is a brave, taboo-breaking milestone, still censored in its own country.
