Controversial Japanese Film Heading to Blu-ray

Posted January 8, 2013 06:49 PM by Webmaster

Synapse FilmsImpulse Pictures, Synapse Films' sub-label, has revealed that it is planning to release on Blu-ray Japanese director Kôyû Ohara's controversial film Ori no naka no yôsei a.k.a Fairy in a Cage (1977). The preliminary release date set by Impulse Pictures is March 12th.

One of the best films in Nikkatsu's pinku eiga catalog, Fairy in a Cage will appear on Blu-ray with brand-new high-definition transfer taken from the original 35mm camera negative.

During World War II, the tyrannical Judge Murayama uses his military power to imprison and torture innocent people. Suspected of helping an anti-government movement, the lovely Namiji Kikushima (Naomi Tani) is captured, along with a local kabuki actor. Helpless and unable to escape, the two are subjected to a grueling series of tortures including rope bondage and physical assault. As the Judge and his evil assistant Kayo revel in their perverse fetishes, a new military recruit they have hired named Taoka may be the key to the prisoners' freedom. He loves Namiji and will do whatever he can to help her, even if it means betrayal to organize an escape.

I don't see how this film is any more controversial than other Nikkatsu Studios films of that era. It is considered one of the better made ones though.

manicsounds,

have never seen this one, but based on the discription i would have to agree with you. nothing sounds extremely unbelieveable or over the top.

is this first pinku on Blu-ray? probably in the US at least. will wait on a review, but will probably end up getting it as soon as it is released regardless of how favorable the review is in terms of AV quality.

As a fan of exploitation cinema I'm probably going to end up buying this. I've only seen Zoom In and I loved that it felt like a japanese giallo so I'm also curious as to how good some of the Nikkatsu label films are.

I hope the long run this means we get BD issues of previous Synapse releases like "Organ", which is second only to "Tetsuo: The Iron Man" for being outlandish.

I don't know how many they have left in this line/collection to release but I hope to see more on blu. We definitely need more classic smut on this format.
